Friday 5th June 2020
I have just received an email from Tameside council that recommends schools do not start their wider reopening until 22nd June. This is because the R number for Tameside is above one. I have copied the letter below for you.
The chair of governors and myself feel we are unable to start our wider reopening on Monday in line with the Council's recommendation. We are very sorry about this as I am sure many of you have started to put plans in place and we realise this is going to be an inconvenience but we must follow the advice of the Director of Population Health to ensure pupils and staff are safe.
We will continue to open for vulnerable and key worker children although, as previously stated, numbers are limited.
I will continue to update you as we get further information.
Welcome to Denton West End
Dear Parents and Visitors,
Thank you for taking the time to look through our website.
We are a large two form entry primary school catering for children from three to eleven years on the outskirts of Tameside.
We are very proud of our school. We have high standards in everything we do; we work hard to achieve our vision ‘Only our best is good enough’. This applies to all people connected to our school. We expect our children to achieve their potential through working hard and having a positive approach to their learning. Our children are well behaved, polite and welcoming. We know because visitors tell us! Our parents work in partnership with the school to ensure their children have the best start to their school life.
Children at our school have a broad and balanced curriculum. We provide our children with many opportunities that will enrich their time at primary school through sport, music, art and drama. We like to take the children out on visits which enables our children to draw upon first hand experiences and enhance the high quality of their work.
Our school values of Caring, Positive, Confident and Working Together ensure that we have a happy and successful learning environment so that our children will become well rounded individuals ready for the next academic stage in their lives.
I hope you have found the information you need in an easy and accessible way. Please let us know if there is anything you would like us to add and we will consider this.
