The reopening of all schools across Kirklees has been hugely positive for thousands of children
and families. Attendance levels are good and many schools have told us how thrilled they are to
have their pupils and staff back together after several months.

These are, of course, extremely difficult times for schools around the country. There has been a
vast amount of guidance from central government and, as you know, Covid-19 measures are in
place to keep everyone as safe as possible. We can assure you that all Kirklees schools have
their own risk assessments and have taken every step they can to reduce risk. We hope your child
has adapted quickly to the changes they have seen at school. For those who may be struggling,
we have been working closely with schools to make sure a high level of support is available.
