Dear Parents and Carers

 Following the announcement from our Prime Minister at 8pm this evening, it is, with great regret, that we are closing our schools to all pupils for tomorrow, Tuesday 5th January. This will enable us to plan provision for children of key workers and vulnerable pupils, and our remote learning programme for Term 3.
As professionals, we are deeply disappointed that this information has been shared with us at this extremely late stage. All previous communication stated that schools were to remain open and this is what we strove to do.
Please complete the Key Worker Declaration and return this to us by noon tomorrow. We will confirm places in readiness for our reopening for children of key workers and vulnerable pupils on Wednesday 6th January.
We appreciate you working with us at this difficult time and we appreciate your patience.
Thank you,


Stewart James
