Dear parents and Carers
Please let me wish everybody a very happy New Year.
Our plan is for all children to return to school on Wednesday, the 6th of January 2021.
However, you may be aware that yesterday the National Education Union and Unison have advised its members not to attend school due to the risk of contracting the new strain of coronavirus and spreading it to others. The unions are advising teachers to take this action to protect themselves, their family, their pupils and their families, colleagues and members of the public.
It will not be possible to assess the impact of this advice until tomorrow, 4th January 2021. I have a meeting with the school’s senior management team tomorrow to discuss this, any further developments and their impact on us. I will confirm via email tomorrow whether the school will be open to all children on Wednesday or whether alternative arrangements need to be made. I will do this as soon as I possibly can.
As always, I thank again for your continued support and will update again as soon as possible.
