Good afternoon everyone
I hope you had a wonderful break and New Year.
As you are aware, in the media, there has been much discussion and speculation with regards to the re-opening of primary schools. Currently we have the capacity to continue to open as usual, however this may change in the coming weeks, for several reasons:
1) There may be another National/Local lockdown
2) Staffing capacity may change due to illness
3) The Government may alter their advice for provision as National figures may increase (as they have in London).
The Local Authority are in constant discussion with Public Health and we receive regular updates, however circumstances change very quickly and I want our school to be as prepared as we possibly can.
During the previous lockdown we provided online learning for all children at home. If the situation arises and we do have to lockdown again, then remote learning will be available for all children via the school year group blogs.

In order for us to be able to meet the needs of our school community, places should only be requested if there are no other arrangements that can be made within your household or child care support bubble.

Please compete this form if you would require child care in the event of a school lockdown. Thank you for your support, Miss Duce

Reminder - if anyone in your household is displaying any coronavirus symptoms, your child must not attend school.
I know these are uncertain times and this is not an ideal situation, however I wanted to ensure that everyone was aware of the plans that school are putting in place should our circumstances change.
The safety of the children and staff is paramount to me and we will continue to follow all guidance provided by the Local Authority and the Government.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
