‘Aiming Higher’




Good evening and sorry for the delay.  Due to the very late announcement from the government, with the backing of our governors we will be closed to all pupils tomorrow.  


It makes us incredibly sad to do this, as we were looking forward to seeing you all, but we have been left with no other way of being able to work with families to identify key worker and vulnerable child places correctly, restructure our staffing to deliver learning in school to those children from Wednesday and online for all other children, and to make sure we can continue to keep everyone safe.  


Before 10pm information will be posted on our website about what you need to do if you think you are a key worker.  Please read and respond.  Once you have emailed school a member of the senior leadership team will ring you tomorrow.


All staff will work tomorrow to get this in place and remote learning will be set up from tomorrow afternoon.


If you have device issues we will be in touch.  


I hope you understand that this is the only way we can manage a very ridiculous situation safely and fairly for all.


Thank you, as always, for your amazing support during very challenging times.
COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
