Thank you for your support during this very challenging time. We look forward to seeing all the learning that the children will be doing, set by their teachers each day for the next two weeks and after the Easter holidays. Any problems do Dojo us. School is closed for all pupils but open for our Key workers and some other groups. School will be open over the Easter break ONLY for our Key workers. These families have been notified.
Ultimately the health and wellbeing of everyone is the main priority. Schools are closing to minimise contact and the spread of the virus. Therefore if your child is able to stay away from others it is going to be the safest for them. We will be operating a reduced staff as our staff also need to keep themselves and their family safe at this time.
Please take great care of yourselves.
