All are welcome here to walk with Jesus as we love, learn and flourish.

It has been a wonderful, busy first week to this half-term, including pancake making, trips and our film night.

The new clubs have now started, as a reminder the clubs are:
Monday: KS2 Zumba
Wednesday: KS1 Dance
Thursday: KS2 Orienteering
Friday: KS2 Football
KS1 had a day at Chester Zoo on Wednesday and, despite the horrible conditions here, the children and staff had much better weather. The children behaved exceptionally well and were a credit to the school and their parents. A thoroughly great day was had by all.

As winter is now upon us, the risk of snowfall increases. In the event of snow, we will endeavour to keep the school open and closing it will only be as a last resort (usually when there is a health and safety issue), nevertheless there may be occasions when it is necessary to close.
In adverse weather, the school will inform parents via Facebook and our text messaging system as soon as possible. If heavy snowfall happens overnight, the conditions will be assessed and you will receive a text message between 07:30 and 08:00 advising you whether school will be open or closed.

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
