SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED TO ALL TOMORROW 05/01/21

SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED TO ALL TOMORROW 

As of the national press release from Boris Johnson at 8pm this evening we have been instructed to return to critical workers and vulnerable children only in school for the next six weeks. 

For this happen we need to send out the forms we have been creating today. Many of you now may be critical workers who were not in March,  and equally some of you may not be critical workers anymore - we cannot just rely on old data. I am sure you will all appreciate this will not be resolved over night as time to collate all the information and organise this will take at least 24 hours. I assure you that we are working on this now and probably late into tonight.  

At the moment I have full backing from our Chair of Governors to close school just for tomorrow, as do many other schools I have just consulted with. This allows time to plan for both online learning and the photocopying of packs that we will create. 

Personally, I am very sorry for this late news. I appreciate this will affect many of you, including the team I need in tomorrow who have children where their schools are closed. 

As ever we will endeavour to make best of an untimely, very late statement of closure. 

Critical workers form- if a school place is needed can be found here- https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=ptMTb6H5LUeHUoFmvHFwyUo-hDz0YUtJpYvOWWgBIHFUQVAwNjNHR1hFOVkzRTM0MTBNMDlUOVpEMS4u 

A link will be emailed as soon as the school email provider is up and running again.

Kindest regards, 

Mrs Gayle Fletcher
