Y6 Kingswood Residential - Officially Cancelled
Dear Parents of Y6 children,
You had probably already resigned yourself to this news, but I can today confirm that the Kingswood, Year 6 residential trip has been formally cancelled. Please see the message below from the Bridge Academy Trust in this regard.
As you are aware government advice requests no gatherings and that we cancel any unnecessary travel. At this time the Trust cannot see that these restrictions will be lifted and it is anticipated that they may actually be tightened in the future as different parts of the country experience the Covid-19 virus at different times.
The Trust therefore requests that Mildmay Junior School cancel the Year 6 Kingswood residential trip; they understand the huge disappointment that this will be for the children.
Please [reassure parents] that they will receive a refund in due course and ask for their patience with this.
The mechanism of how we refund parents is under discussion by the [administration] team and we are very aware that in the current climate many families would be grateful to receive the refund asap.
We all share the disappointment that you and the children will be feeling at this time, but also know that you and they will wholly understand the need for this decision to be taken.
