Infant & Junior School Closed to ALL PUPILS Tuesday 5th January
As I am sure you are aware, Boris Johnson has announced this evening that we are entering a national lockdown due to the severity of the pandemic. Schools received this information at exactly the same time as parents and carers, which has placed us in a very challenging situation.
In full agreement with the Governing Body, I have been forced to take the emergency decision to close the school to all children tomorrow, which includes key worker children. This decision is the same for both the infant and junior schools.
We understand that this is going to cause significant inconvenience to all parents, but especially those critical key workers. However, in order to prepare for this significant change in our operating procedures, we have been left with no choice.
Please may I ask that if you are a critical key worker parent, you complete the survey sent a few hours ago. This will enable us to plan the groups, staffing and provision for these children. More information will follow tomorrow on our remote education offer as well as the specific plans for key worker children to attend school.
Thank you for your understanding and support at this extremely challenging time.
