I'm sorry I haven't been able to update you this week on the situation regarding more pupils returning to school. I have been involved in long discussions with our cluster and the local authority and the situation has changed on what feels like an hourly basis. The council have tonight put out a statement saying schools in Hartlepool will not be opening on the 1st June. This is due to the fact that the level of infections in the town continues to rise. I am going to a meeting on Wednesday and I hope to be able to update you all then.
For now we continue as we are, remaining open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children.
Please be assured that when we do open we will have everyone's best interests at heart.
