Dear Parents and friends,


Today we have to close our doors, to the majority of our pupils, for the foreseeable future. This is not something that we ever wanted to do but we recognise that it is absolutely the correct thing to do in order to suppress the spread of COVID-19.


We do not know when we will be able to re-open and that is unsettling for the children, their families and for us as staff. Please let me reassure you that it is our every intention to stay in good contact with you. We will be contactable by phone and email and we will be regularly posting on Facebook, Twitter and the website. Staff are still working – they will be doing shifts at our child care provision and ensuring that work is added to the website in order for you to support your child’s learning from home. We will also be busy making preparations for when your children can return to school sorting the curriculum, enhancing learning environments and planning.


Thank you so much for your support. It is very much appreciated. It has been very difficult following the guidelines in terms of who can and can’t make use of our child care provision. The Government have been very clear in that child care places in school are limited and that even in households where there is someone eligible as a Key Worker, if there is another partner available to provide child care that needs to be the case. So many of you have helped school by doing this and we are so grateful to you. This is a global crisis and we all have to pull together to heal our world.


Finally I wish you all the very best of health, stay safe and I cannot wait to be sending you the good news that school is open again! Take care.


Yours sincerely,

Miss C Halstead

Head Teacher

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks

Claire Halstead
