With God's love, all are encouraged to thrive


Dear parents,


As you are aware, the government has announced this evening that we will be closed as of tomorrow.  We apologise for the short notice and thank you as always for your understanding.  We will be open for critical and vulnerable children from tomorrow morning and because of the lack of time to prepare, will welcome any children who arrive for the first day.  Please let us know, as soon as possible, if you qualify for critical/vulnerable care.  Due to the circumstances, learning (both within school and remotely) may be disrupted tomorrow but we will do our best to ensure that everything is up and running by Wednesday.


Below is a link to the government document which details whether you are entitled to access a place at school.  You are allowed full-time care but we ask that to help ensure we have the minimum number of children, you only use the space if you are working.  This will enable the teaching staff to dedicate the maximum amount of time to a quality remote learning experience.  


Please contact Kay Davenport as soon as possible (via email please) with your requirements so that a plan can be made for all.


Thank you for your support,


Take care,


Kay Davenport
