COVID-19 information

Return to school on Monday 8th March 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,


I am sure you have now heard the news that schools have been closed due to the pandemic. We will be open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children only as from tomorrow who meet the following criteria:


  • Your child came to us during the first lockdown, as you are a key worker or your child is vulnerable
  • You have contacted us this afternoon to say you are a key worker and need a place 

If either of these are the case, then please do send in your child tomorrow at the time you were sending them in last term and also pick up at the same time, in the first instance.


If you do not fall into either category but believe that you are a key worker and your child will need a place, please contact the school by 12pm tomorrow to arrange for your child to return from WEDNESDAY.  They will not be able to return tomorrow as they are not currently on our Key Worker list.


Please note that we will not be running the Breakfast Club or After School Care Club.


As we have just found out about the lockdown, teachers have had no time to plan any online lessons for tomorrow. Please check the website in the morning for some suitable work for the children to do for tomorrow until we have had the opportunity to put online learning and resources in place.


Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
