IMPORTANT - School Closure Announcement



Dear Parents and Carers,

Re School Closure Announcement


As you will be aware from tonight’s announcement schools are to open only for critical workers and vulnerable children from tomorrow. Please see the link below for the definition of critical workers.

In order to make arrangements and identify who our critical workers are in Years R, 1, 4 & 6 (and year 3 Thursday and Friday) school will be closed to all children in these year groups tomorrow whilst we make the necessary arrangements.

We will be open for children of critical workers in Years 2, 3 & 5 tomorrow as these children have already been identified and the arrangements made following correspondence at earlier today.

Parents who are critical workers of children in years R, 1, 4 and 6 (and year 3 Thursday and Friday)should email the office before 12 noon to request a place. In addition to this if you feel your child meets the criteria in the link above which defines vulnerable children you should also email the office before noon.

Please accept our apologies for this short and late notice, however, the first we knew of it was at 8pm during the government announcement.

During the course of the day tomorrow we will advise you of the remote learning to be delivered to your child/children.

We will also contact the families of those children who are eligible for free school meals chi during the course of the week if you are eligible for free school meals.

You are in our thoughts and prayers as we enter Lockdown 3 and please be assured that we are still here for you as always at this difficult time and we will ensure that we provide plenty of opportunities for the children to see each other on Zoom and look forward to being a whole school community once more.

Stay safe and please remember to check the new restrictions which apply.


Kind regards,


Mrs B Davies

Executive Head Teacher
