Monday 4th January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
Sadly news has broken this evening – broadcast by Boris Johnson - that all schools are to close with immediate effect from tomorrow.
Therefore school will be closed for all children tomorrow - Tuesday 5th January.
I am sorry to say that I had no prior knowledge of the information broadcast before this evening and had hoped that this wouldn’t be the case. However, we must follow guidance as our community’s safety is paramount.
Before hearing of today’s news, in the eventuality of schools having to close, your child’s teacher has prepared a two-week learning pack to support your child’s remote learning. I will send further information out tomorrow informing you of the different times for collection of these packs.
Earlier this afternoon I sent a parent newsletter asking those of you who are key workers / have a child with an EHC plan to complete an application form, in preparation for possible school closure. If you haven’t done so already, please would you kindly send your response in by tomorrow 1pm so that a plan of action can be put in place as soon as possible to support your child/ren.
As you will appreciate, changes during these times come suddenly and we must act quickly to do what we can in the hope of preventing any further harm this virus may cause.
As we were unable to offer prospective pupils and parents a chance to visit our school as part of our annual open morning please click the link below for a virtual tour of our school
