With yesterday’s announcement by Government, we are implementing with urgency our plan to support your child’s learning from home. We appreciate this is a sudden and significant change, and will be heavily disruptive to many people in our community.

If you need to have your child cared for by someone else you will need to identify that person or people as part of your self-isolated group. This will need to be done by midnight Wednesday and the group must remain the same for the whole 4 week period. The caregiver’s own group (eg, their partner and children), your child and your own group (eg, your parents and other children) become one group.

Hello to all our families

Many of you would have already heard the news that schools are closed as of tomorrow apart from essential services children.  Schools will be in full Lockdown by Wednesday at midnight and at this stage students will be able to return next term.  This announcement has certainly taken effect more quickly than anticipated but our teachers have been preparing for such a development.  All families will be contacted over the next 2 days by phone or email to chat about what learning may look like for your child while our schools are in lockdown and to ensure that you have all the resources you need.  Please do not hesitate to call or email us here tomorrow if you have any queries or concerns.  We will keep you informed with regular updates as we are notified.
