Welcome to Westwood
‘Enjoy the Challenge’


Local Authority Guidance

Dear Parents,

Below is a document from Lancashire County Council advising that schools do not open for more pupils on the 1st June.Please note that this document was only shared today and I had no prior knowledge.

Although we have clear plans and a thorough and detailed risk assessment in place, I intend to follow the local authority guidance. From the 2nd June, school will be open to key worker and vulnerable families only. 

I understand that many of you will be extremely disappointed with this decision but it is necessary to follow the advice of the Local Authority. 

As soon as I receive guidance stating that it is safe for Lancashire primary schools to re-open, I can assure that Westwood is prepared and I will let you know the new wider re-opening date. 

Thank you for your understanding in these very challenging times.

Take care,

Julie Martin

Head Teacher
