Updated Information – 5th January 2021

Following on from the communication we sent out last night, the Government has announced that all schools will close from Monday 4th January 2021.

The exception to this applies if your child is vulnerable or you are a critical worker. As we are now in a national lockdown, if you are able to care for your child at home then you should do so.

The definition of a critical worker or a vulnerable child can be found here.

We need to identify who will require our support from Wednesday 6th January 2021 so please can you all complete questionnaire here. We are able to offer a place during normal school hours to those that are eligible. Unfortunately, we cannot offer flexible childcare, so places are offered on a full time basis which supports continued learning for the children. Those children not in school will access their learning online and more details will be shared later today.

We are working extremely hard to ensure we support our families in the best way we can. Not only will we provide remote learning, but we will also be working with our families to ensure the whole school community are supported during this time.

If you do not have internet access or require support to access a device for home learning or any IT support, please contact the school.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
