Message to Parent/Carers 4 January 2021


Dear Parent/Carer, 


Further to my earlier message, I am writing to let you know that due to union advice and staff availability, we are unable to open the school tomorrow


Instead, we are going to move to online learning from Wednesday and will only be opening school to key worker and vulnerable children.  If you consider yourself to be a key worker and would like to request a place for your child, you must email by 12 noon tomorrow stating how you fulfil the key worker criteria which can be found at Critical workers and vulnerable children who can access schools or educational settings - GOV.UK (   


A member of staff from school will be in touch with vulnerable families this afternoon to offer places. 


Sincere apologies for the short notice.  Please be assured that this is not a decision we have taken lightly but the safety of all children and staff are of paramount importance to us.   It has also been necessary for us to wait for a range of information to be made available to us before we could make an informed decision. 


We will continue to monitor the situation and review it regularly in light of further developments and will keep you informed. 


Many thanks for your support and understanding. 


Mr. Shields.
