Easter Update – Thursday 1st April 2021

1 April 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are so delighted to have all our children back in school full-time. Thank you for all your support with staggered start and finish times and for wearing your face coverings in the playground. I am extremely grateful to have avoided the necessity to isolate class or year group bubbles so far; I am also aware that many other Gateshead primary schools have been less fortunate.

As with previous holiday periods, I have responsibility for track and trace procedures at the beginning of the Easter holiday. If your child develops symptoms and subsequently tests positive for Covid-19 on Friday 2nd or Saturday 3rd April, please contact school as soon as possible using the KellsLane@klps.org.uk email address. This will allow me to contact the parents of any pupil who may have been in direct contact with a positive case.

As restrictions begin to ease over the coming weeks, I hope you will have the opportunity to safely visit your family and friends. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us as we attempt to enjoy a meal or some sociable time outdoors.

I hope you have a lovely Easter.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
