National Lockdown - School Closed - 05.01.21
04th January 2021
You may have heard the announcement from the PM tonight about all schools being closed.
Please do not send your child into school tomorrow.
We will contact you about key worker and vulnerable children lists tomorrow, so they can come in as from Wednesday. We are very sorry for any inconvenience while we make arrangements. We are closed to ALL children tomorrow whilst preparations are put in place. Thank you for your patience.
You will shortly be receiving a letter that outlines the criteria for critical worker provision during lockdown. Please think very carefully before applying for a place. It's critical we have enough staffing to support home learning as well as school based provision. If application numbers are too high, we will have to revert to other criteria. Our aim is to get this completed by tomorrow evening and be ready to deliver provision on Wednesday. We will need your support to make this happen.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.Read More
