Update following Downing Street Briefing - 4th January 2021

Dear Parents / Carers,

Happy new year. We had a good parents Zoom call this afternoon, which many parents were able to access. However, in these circumstances things are very fast moving…

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister this evening, we will need to start thinking about our approach to how we manage this next lockdown. We will be in touch as the week progresses to discuss the risk assessment with each of you, and recognise the amount of school time that your children have already missed but need to consider these health risks, which are obviously serious too.

In the short term please could you consider whether you are able to manage your children at home for the time being so that we can manage the next few days. We are likely to be a number of staff down until other schools sort their key worker provision. We very much hope we will be able to support all children whose parents are critical workers or feel that they really need their child in school.


Best wishes,



Justin Price

Head Teacher
