Coronavirus Updates
Posted 16th March

Dear parents and carers,
We understand that you are all very concerned about the current pandemic.

As a school we have chosen not to have school assemblies and have asked teachers to avoid sand, water and playdoh play and not to cook until further notice. We have also cancelled choir as this is a large group of children.
We will be postponing our computing workshop on 24th March and the parent book look this Friday morning.
The Y3 performance on 26th March will be rescheduled.
The family learning event on 28th March will be cancelled.
The Y5 debate competition at the Council Chambers on 19th March has been cancelled.

With regard to the Y6 theatre trip and the Y5 PGL trip, we are awaiting further guidance from the Government. We will let you know as soon as this is clear.

We have been advised by the Education Welfare Officer that if your child is not in school as you have been asked to self-isolate following advice from NHS 111, you will need to provide evidence of this advice please. If your child does not have symptoms but you are choosing to self-isolate, this will be an unauthorised register code but we will put a note on our system to explain the reasons.

We understand that this is all very disappointing news but we hope you understand that under the circumstances we have taken every precaution to protect the children, staff and parents. We will hope to reschedule as many of these events as we can later in the year but until we have clearer guidance on potential school closures this is difficult to do.

Best Wishes
