Following the announcement from the Government and Department for Education with regards to school closures for Christmas, we would like to inform you that we are going to use Friday 18th December as an INSET day. As a result of this, school will be closed to all children. The autumn term will officially end on Thursday 17th December 2020 at the usual staggered time.
This decision takes into account the DfE recommendation that schools provide “six clear days” to manage any track and trace communication before Christmas Eve.
If your child tests positive up until and including the 23rd of December, please let us know by texting 07561360435 and using the following message:
My child, ………………..(name, class name, year group) has tested positive for Covid-19 on ……. (date of test).
Please note that you will receive a follow up call from Ms Bass or Mrs Patel once your message has been received. This follow up phone call will allow us to ensure that we have all the information we need to support the track and trace system.
All children will return to school on Wednesday 6th January 2021, providing they do not display any symptoms of Covid -19, and they are not isolating due to contact with an affected person.
