Hello to all our pupils and families,

I hope you are all keeping safe and well in what has been a year like no other and hopefully not one to be repeated. School closures and lockdown within wider society has been difficult for many and we are all keen to get back to some routine and structure. I am looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming our pupils back to school.

Unfortunately, at this time I am not in a position to give you details of what the school day will look like in August/September. What I do know is that staff will return to school on 17th August, following the summer holiday period, and during that week we will plan provision based on Public Health Guidance at that time. Given the current fluidity around advice coming from the Department of Education about what September will look like we are not in a position to make firm arrangements. The restart process will be different however the overall intention will be to achieve maximum face-to-face teaching time for all pupils at the earliest opportunity.

Your child’s class teacher will be in contact with you no later than 21st August to provide information regarding provision and the ‘new school day’.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support throughout what has been such a difficult time for us all. I hope that you have a more relaxing Summer Holiday and look forward to communicating with you again in August.

Take care
