Important letter from Mrs Miller
I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year and we pray that 2021 brings health and happiness to all families in our community.
I am sure you are aware of the current speculation in the news about primary schools reopening next week.
We all want schools to be open safely as soon as possible. However, teaching unions are concerned about the current rate of transmission and that the new variant might be more prevalent amongst younger people than the previous variants.
Governors and senior managers want to guarantee safety for our children, their parents, our staff and their families.
If we are unable to fully open on 5th January, we will remain open for Key Worker parents and vulnerable pupils.
If you are a Key Worker parent and sent your child to school during the first lock down, you are already registered with us and have Key Worker status. We still need to know if you are wanting to send your child into school from Tuesday.
If you are a new parent or have changed role and would need your child to attend from 5th January could you please contact school firstname.lastname@example.org with Key Worker as the email heading stating how many days you may require.
Please also provide proof of your Key Worker status attached to the email.
We are working alongside the Local Authority and will keep you informed of any changes to the current situation as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Alison Miller
