January 5th onwards - School Closure
Dear Parents and Carers
As I am sure you are aware from the Prime Minister’s announcement tonight, schools are to be closed from tomorrow until further notice.
Unlike the lockdown situation in March of last year, we now have to respond within a significantly shorter time frame to ensure that, as quickly as possible, school is set up to facilitate the childcare provision for critical workers and vulnerable children.
Therefore tomorrow the school will be closed to all children.
Staff will be in school:
To alter planned face to face learning so that it is accessible online for most children. Remote learning will begin on Wednesday of this week;
To communicate with parents who (due to their Covid-critical role) require ongoing childcare
To organise the school environment to manage the children involved
We do apologise to critical worker parents and those with vulnerable children that it is not possible to organise the required provision overnight, but as soon as we are clear about staffing availability and timings, we will be asking parents to let us know what they need in terms of childcare.
More information will follow tomorrow.
