Most of you will now know that yesterday, the Government has ordered schools in the UK to close on Friday afternoon until further notice.
I realise this is distressing news for the entire school community and will leave many anxious, but I want to reassure everyone that we have spent a great deal of time preparing for this announcement. I feel very confident we have everything in place to ensure that we continue to support you and your children in the coming weeks and months.
Over today and tomorrow we will plan for how we can offer a service to look after the children of key workers and other children that the Government wants us to keep in school. At this point we cannot give you any more details, but we will let you know what our plans are as soon as possible.
All staff have worked tirelessly this week to ensure we have 'home learning' arrangements in place. If your child has not received a pack they will do so within the next 24 hours or they are available to download from the school website. We aim to keep in contact with you regularly and this will be done through texting, the school website and our social media platforms. Please ensure that we have up to date contacts for your child’s primary carer.
I am sure that you will join me in thanking all our fantastic staff for working so hard at this difficult time. Some cannot be in school at the moment but are working hard at home.
I want to thank you all for working with us and your continued support for the school at this time.
