Cotmanhay Junior School

Safe, Happy Learning

Information from DCC

I have today received information from DCC indicating that Derbyshire schools should not increase the number of children attending on June 1st, by reopening for year 6. Year 6 pupils, along with years 3, 4 and 5, should continue to work at home using resources and ideas provided by their class teachers.


As a school we are committed to working towards reopening for as many pupils as possible as soon as it is safe to do so. We will remain open in the week beginning 1.6.20 only to those vulnerable pupils and key workers' children who have been accessing a place in school this term already.


We may be able to open up more places to key workers' children from 8.6.20. If you are a key worker and require a place in school for your child, please email


Thank you for your patience at this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you all soon.


Please stay safe.

Head Teacher
