As you may be aware we have seen a series of positive Covid-19 cases in school that have impacted different class bubbles and year groups. After such a sustained period of having no cases in school, I am determined to continue to make our school a Covid-secure environment for children and staff. Therefore In consultation with Transform Trust we have taken the difficult decision to close the school site to all staff and pupils from Monday 8.2.21 to prevent any possible transmission of the virus at school. All pupils will therefore have remote learning at home next week.

Friday 12.2.21 is an INSET day so there will be no live sessions that day.

This temporary closure will take us through to the half term holiday, therefore providing a 2 week break.

My appeal to all parents is to observe Covid-secure protocols at all times – isolate if you or your household have symptoms, book a test and prevent the spread of this virus.

Staff will continue to contact you over Class Dojo and Teams next week.

Thank you for your support.

Heather Tarrant


Please DO NOT send your child to school if they have a high temperature, a cough or a loss of sense of taste

If your child is isolating, please ensure they complete the remote learning.

COVID – Quick guide for parents

Transform Trust CEO – Covid-19 Update to Parents/Carers

Since the late summer resumption in September, School has been prepared for managing Covid-19 cases as they become more commonplace in our local community. In line with Government and Public Health guidance, we will be asking staff and pupil bubbles to isolate whenever symptoms or cases appear. This is designed to minimise the impact on the wider school community. We continue to communicate to all affected parents/carers directly through text message and Class Dojo and this will ensure children are isolated for the necessary time.

We wish to ensure education continues even when pupil isolations are necessary. Your school has made provision for delivering this to all children at home.

I want to share how proud I am of the school staff who are working tirelessly and courageously to support your children.

Finally let me thank you, our parents/carers, for your continued support to the school during these particularly challenging times.

Stay safe.

Rebecca Meredith
