Emergency School Closure tomorrow Tuesday 5th January 2021

Dear Parents,

As many of you will have just heard the Prime Minister's announcement, all primary schools are closed as of tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January) due to the increasing risk of the spread of Coronavirus. As schools have only just been informed of this, we will be having an emergency school closure tomorrow (5th January) for all children, to allow staff to prepare for remote learning as well as organising places and schooling for Key worker and vulnerable children.

From Wednesday 6th January, we will be offering on-site learning for children of key workers and vulnerable children. Please email the school office on if you are a key worker and you have no other alternative childcare. 

Please indicate your child's name, year group and the days they require a key worker place. We need this information by midday tomorrow.

We will be in touch tomorrow regarding Free School Meals for eligible children over this period of school closure. We will also write to you tomorrow regarding how to access remote learning for your child/children from Wednesday. There are links to learning for each child's year group on the school website for tomorrow. 

Please do not send your child into school tomorrow. We appreciate that this is short notice. Thank you for your support.

We continue to pray for this situation,

Kind regards,

Elizabeth Rippon
