Letter re school closure
As you know, we have spent much of this week dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 virus and preparing for the potential of school closure. Following the Prime Minister’s address yesterday evening, our suspicions have been confirmed and from 3.30pm tomorrow, our school will be closed ‘until further notice’.
Hopefully you have received information about how to access learning activities, communicate with staff and the various login information needed to use some of our learning platforms. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher. They are happy to support you with these systems.
There are many issues to consider, one of which is whether we will need to offer in school provision for children of ‘key workers’. If you think that this applies to you, please get in touch: let us know the occupations of adults in your household and we will check your eligibility.
It has been confirmed that children will not take statutory tests this year. This includes the Year 1 phonics check, Year 2 SATs, Year 4 times table check and Year 6 SATs.
As parents this is a very difficult and uncertain time for us all. The whole staff team send our warmest wishes to you. We will continue to keep in touch over the coming days and weeks
Chair of Governors
