In this uncertain time whilst your child is away from school, my staff will contact each child at least once a week to check they are safe and well. This contact will be in school times, 8.30am to 3pm and may come from a withheld number. Please answer this and take the opportunity to speak with my lovely staff so we can have regular contact to keep in touch so we know you are all safe and well.
Secondary school are closed from Monday 4th to Friday 15th January for years 7-10 and year 12, and Monday 4th January to Friday 8th January for years 11 and 13 . However, parents of children who are ‘Key Workers’ or ‘Critical Worker’ can continue to bring their children into school so that they can continue to go to work.
