Government announces schools must close from Tuesday 5th January 2021

I am sure that you have heard that our Prime Minister has announced that all schools must close to most children as from 5th January 2021. As a school we had already made the choice to provisionally shut the school for 2 weeks after opening on Monday 4th January. This closure will now be extended as per the Government advice. 

Provision for Key Worker and vulnerable children will commence on Tuesday 5th January and all parents/carers have been contacted about this. If you need this childcare provision then please contact the school office as soon as possible. 

Teachers will be organising home learning which will also commence on Wednesday 6th January. It is the expectation that children will join face to face sessions with their teachers through Microsoft TEAMs. We have previously gathered information about children who have access to a suitable device for this sort of remote learning and children who have access to the internet. School has a limited supply of equipment to loan out. Families can pick up teaching packs (resources/books) and devices from 11am on Tuesday 5th January.
