We have made enquiries with the Health Protection Hub regarding the possibility of having parents attend our sports day events. Everyone is waiting to see what the Government decide to do with the June 21st possible easing announcement. The figures across the country are rising slightly and this is reflected in Telford.
We do not want parents to book time off work, only to find parents are not permitted to attend. We also understand that it would be unfair for both children and parents if we make a last minute announcement. Some parents would then be unable to rearrange work to suit at short notice, and then children would feel upset that other parents were there but not their own.
As a result of the uncertainty with lockdown, the complexities around parents getting time off work and the rising virus figures we have made the difficult decision to say that for this year, parents will not be permitted on site to watch. What we can guarantee is that the children will partake in sports day and have a lovely time and we will of course be posting lots of photos of them enjoying themselves. I know a lot of parents will be disappointed in this decision, but ultimately we need to go with what is safe.
