Friday Update – 15th October

15 October 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to thank you all for your continued support in helping school ease some of the restrictions we have had in place during the past 18 months. The safety and well-being of pupils and staff is our number one priority and we are continuing to monitor COVID case rates and safety measures on a daily basis. As many of you will be aware, from September, it is no longer a schools responsibility to inform parents when cases arise. We speak to public health on a regular basis and they will advise us if and when we need to inform parents of cases in a particular class or year group.

Please use the link below to read the letter from Alice Wiseman which I hope will give further clarity on the role of school in managing COVID cases.

Have a great weekend.

Your sincerely,

Mrs R Swinbank

Acting Headteacher
