SCHOOL IS CLOSED TO MOST PUPILS FROM TUESDAY 5th JANUARY 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will no doubt be aware, the Prime Minister announced at the end of January that it will not be possible for schools to re-open to all pupils and resume face-to-face learning immediately after half-term.  Instead, it is hoped that it will be safe to commence from Monday 8th March.  This was shared in our newsletter sent on Thursday 28th January which can be found here.  We have been told that we can expect confirmation of this at least two weeks before this date. 

At this time, schools continue to remain open to vulnerable children and the children of critical workers only.  All other children are expected to engage in remote learning during this time, much of which is being delivered through Microsoft Teams.  Parents and carers should follow this link to find out more about our remote education provision.  It has been fantastic receiving so many positive comments regarding the learning provision being provided and hearing just how the children are engaging with this.  That said, we know that it is not as easy for some as it might be for others and whether you are juggling work commitments, supporting remote learning or attempting to be the face of calm in response to the challenges of family life, we really do appreciate how you are managing this.  

This is an incredibly challenging time for everyone so thank you for all that you are doing to keep the community safe, whether your child is currently attending school or not.  Despite schools being expected to restrict attendance at this time, our school risk assessment and risk management strategy outlining the risk and control measures in place is never more important.  Please follow this link to find out more information.  

As always, look after one another, stay positive and stay safe.

With very best wishes,

Mr J. Savage
Headteacher
