Dear Parents and Carers

Please see link below for letter. I am sure this will come as no surprise given the huge increases in positive cases both locally and nationally.

On Thursday the country will be going into another lockdown, in an attempt to suppress the spread of the virus. Schools will remain open, and we will continue to provide the care and education that you expect. However, in order to minimise disruption to the school, please can I ask that you support us in ensuring that your child observes the lockdown rules when not in school and that they carry both a face covering and hand sanitiser with them at all times. It is evident that the next few weeks and months are going to be very difficult for schools to manage and we are going to need your support in managing at this time.

I would also request that you do NOT contact school regarding positive cases unless your child is directly involved, although we appreciate this is a worrying time for everyone. We simply do not have the resources to answer numerous calls and emails each time we have a case. We take all our advice and guidance from the experts, Public Health England, who are contacted by all schools whenever there is a positive case.

Thank you for your continued support.

Adrian Ward
