School Closure Update

Dear parents and carers

Tonight (18.3.20) the government announced plans to close schools at the end of the day on Friday 20th March. There are plans for schools to remain open next week for children of key workers and vulnerable pupils. We will receive further information about this tomorrow and we will aim to confirm this with parents as soon as we can. There are also plans to support parents of children who are entitled to Free School Meals and again we will share details with you on this as soon as we have them.

Teachers are working hard to ensure that there are learning activities available via the school website and that materials can be sent home should this be required. Letters will be sent home tomorrow regarding this and posted to the school website should your child currently be absent from school.

Whilst we have been preparing for this, it is still a rapidly changing situation so please do be patient as we try to get the best information and support out to you. We have been so grateful for all the kind comments that have been received recently and are thinking of you all.

Kind regards

Mr Le Bredonchel
