I hope you and your families are keeping well.
As you are aware, our school has now been closed since 12th March 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. We are now hoping to re-open our school safely, in line with current guidance and recommendations on 26th August 2020.
Re-opening the school safely will require the co-operation of all members of our School Community – BoM, School Leadership, Staff, Parents and Pupils. We will all be called on to play our part in ensuring that re-opening of the school is done in a safe manner which prevents the spread of the virus and allows the vital work of Teaching and Learning to proceed with as little disruption as possible.
We are currently finalising our plan for the safe reopening of the school and once completed, this plan will be communicated to parents a week before the school re-opens.
The Covid-19 Response Plan gives details of:
There are a number of maintenance upgrades currently being completed in the school;
Our BoM will keep you informed as to the progress of our re-opening plans and provide you with the information required by you to play your part in safely re-opening the school. We are really looking forward to welcoming our children back to school and will be doing all that we can to ensure that the return to school is a safe and enjoyable experience for the children. We will be in touch with you again before school re-opens.
