Dear Parents,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

As you will be aware the government has stated that they want to implement a phased return of some children to school from 1st. June.

The first phase includes pre-school ages.


We emphasise that the health and safety of all children, parents and staff remains our top priority.


As we previously messaged, we will be reopening Playgroup for those who indicated their wish to return on Monday 15 June at usual times.

There will be only a small group of children at this time and similar to many schools, to maximise safety for all, we will be open only 3-days;  Monday,  Wednesday and Friday each week.

We have prepared a letter for your guidance and information, and published this on our website at :-

 Letter To Parents

For everyone’s safety it is vital that you read this and understand the situation, expectations and responsibilities fully before resumption of Playgroup on Monday.

Stay safe,

Best Regards,

Julie Skipp and Winyates Playgroup.
