Dear Parents and Carers
Following on from Boris Johnson’s announcement of a new national lockdown, we are having to partially close the school with immediate effect. Please do not bring your children to school on Tuesday 5th January until further notice.
School staff will be providing Remote Education from Wednesday 6th January via Seesaw, email, or paper copies.
If both parents (or single parent if living alone) are key workers and are at work during school hours and you have no other childcare alternative, then you can bring your child into school from 9am-3.15pm on Tuesday 5th January. (Drop off and collect at the main gates of the upper school). This must however be as a last resort, as we have all been directed to remain at home where possible and minimise the risk of infection.
Please Note: School dinners will not be available, so you will need to send in a packed lunch.
Before the end of this week parents of vulnerable children or children with EHCPs will be contacted directly to assess if they need to attend school. This will allow the school time to organise staffing and provision with a view for some children to attend school from Monday 11th January.
We are hopeful that we will receive guidance about free school meal vouchers this week and will communicate with you as soon as we can.
We will update you all tomorrow with any further information once we receive it from the government.
I am so sorry for this late communication and I thank you in advance for your support.
