Covid Updates & Remote Learning

As we now all know, the country is back into a national lockdown with the message being ‘Stay at home’.  As the current situation stands, the school is only open for key workers and vulnerable pupils for the rest of this term. We will of course prioritise maintaining our provision and safety measures throughout the term and will communicate changes as effectively as possible.

The government has been very clear that the message at this time is ‘Stay at Home’.  With the concern around virus transmission, we know it is essential to reduce the amount of individuals in school as much as possible.

Therefore, in line with Local Authority guidance, if there is someone at home who can look after your child and support them with remote learning, we would ask that your child does not come to school on that day.  If you are a key worker, can you please identify the days that you will need their child to come in and let us know what those days will be.  This is important so that we can check children’s attendance.  Some of you may need your child to attend full-time, but if this is not the case for you, then we would ask you to please help us to keep everyone safe by not sending your child to school unless you absolutely have to.

As a school we are committed to supporting our children’s well-being during this challenging time.  We will be remaining in contact with all children who are not able to come into school, through Google Classroom, assemblies, videos etc.  Let us know if you require any support and we can phone or email to talk to you or your child, if you need us to.

Stay safe and we hope to welcome everyone back into school soon.
