Headteacher Update 10.12.2021

Dear Parent/Carer

As always I hope this finds you and your family well. I am writing to you to highlight the arrangements of the last week of term. As you know school closes on Friday 17th December 2021 at 1200 and reopens on Thursday 6th January 2022. Pupils will be able to gain their school lunch as normal on Friday 17th December.

Given the recent developments with COVID, our Senior Team will be visiting classes and distributing LFD test kits to any pupil who wants them for themselves or their families over the festive period. I would ask, again, for your support over the festive period that you test your household – specifically from Monday 3rd January 2022 in preparation for the return to school on Thursday 6th. Whilst there are many unknowns with the new variant, the best way to mitigate further disruption to schools in the new year is to test regularly.
