Government Announcement re School Closure Measures

Posted on 18th March 2020

Dear Parents,

Following this evening's announcement regarding school closure measures, we can confirm that we will be adhering to our moral and statutory duty and remaining open for the children of key workers and any vulnerable children - we look forward to welcoming them on Monday. The school expects to receive further information/clarification from the DfE tomorrow and will share this with you as soon as practicable.

The school has been proactive and preparing for a range of eventualities - consequently we will be sharing ways of accessing online learning and suggestions for home-based activities. 

I am proud that every member of the staff team has ensured the wellbeing and happiness of our children and each other during this unprecedented time.  Thank you also to our families and the community for your continued support and understanding.

Take care.

Kate Cumberpatch and team
