Dear Parents/Carers Thank you so much for your engagement with the online learning today-the feedback has been very positive. Well done to the teachers and TAs who have made this work. Thanks also to all the staff at the chalk face! You have been brilliant too.

Critical workers

We have much higher numbers in school than we had during the previous lock down. The more children and staff in school the greater the risk of transmission of Covid-19.  Whilst your child currently has a place, we need to reiterate at this point that we have had no guidance from the Government or DfE and this may be subject to change. It is incredibly important to remind you that if someone is at home or you can source other childcare arrangements, please do not send your child into school. The government advice is very clear:

  • Stay at home
  • Save lives
  • Protect the NHS

For instance, if you only need to access your place for 2 days out of the 5, this is not a problem. Whilst your child currently has a place, we need to reiterate at this point that we have had no guidance from the Government or DfE and this may be subject to change.


Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Mr. Gaskill
