4 January 2021

I am so sorry to have to write this late in the evening, I share your frustration with the short notice that we have all just been given about the school closure. School is closed tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January) and your child will be provided with online learning tomorrow while we put provision and support in place ready for key workers and children that meet the government's vulnerable status to start on Wednesday. A form will be sent to you tomorrow for you to apply for key worker provision.

Tomorrow, arrangements for remote teaching will be announced across all year groups. This will include assistance for families to ensure that they can access the provision.

We will apply the same criteria as during the first 'lockdown' when allocating places to "key worker" children.  Places for children deemed 'vulnerable' will be allocated using the national guidance.

Our priority is to provide the best support and remote learning possible for your child.  Thank you for your continued support.
