1st June 2020 Coronavirus update

Dear Parents and Carers

We hope that you are keeping safe and well.
Thank you all for responding to our recent parent survey in relation to reopening. 
In regards to pupils returning to school, we would like to update you that we are continuing to gather information and to complete risk assessments, so that when possible we can reopen safely.  This will be later than the 1st of June.
We take the safety of our pupils and staff extremely seriously and wish to reassure you we will only re-open when we are fully confident that it is safe to do so. 
Please continue to check the website and parentmail for updates. 
Kind Regards
Mary Bickmore 


The school currently remains closed to protect the health and safety of our vulnerable community.  The Government has advised schools to plan a phased return starting from 1st June 2020. Schools will only reopen when it has been assessed as safe to do so and this will be for a reduced number of pupils on a reduced timetable.   Special schools, special post-16 institutions and hospital schools have been told to work towards welcoming back as many children and young people as can be safely catered for in their setting. We have sent all parents a questionnaire regarding reopening.  Thank you to those of you who have sent this back.  If you have not yet completed it, can we ask that you do as we are using the information collected to plan how we will reopen.  We will take all responses into account, but please be aware that ultimately we will be guided as to what is assessed as safe for our pupils and staff.

For your information please we have attached a sheet of FAQ:

Teachers are organising remote learning sessions using  Google Meets. Teachers are also setting fun activities that you can do at home with your child on Evidence for Learning. Please continue to add your own photos and videos - it is great to see our pupils looking well and having fun! If you have problems accessing either of these please email the school.

We have attached some links to free websites that you might find useful to support your child's learning and wellbeing during these difficult times.

During our school closure you will still be able to make contact with the school via office at: office@limeacademyravensbourne.london

                              You can also email Julie Cook, our Family Support Worker at: julie.cook@hornbeamacademytrust.com  Julie is able to answer day to day queries during closure and can support with applications for free school meal vouchers.
