Message from the Head - 17.06.2021

I thought I would wait until all announcements and government guidance had been issued before writing to you. The delay in the roadmap to recovery, just means a few alterations to our summer plans. Level 3 infection control remains in place with limited visits to school and staggered starts and collections.  Sports day activities will now be in September, the Year 6 graduation will take place on the last day of term and the EYFS will once again hold a virtual ceremony. Plans are already underway, watch this space!

We have now confirmed with governors our staffing structure for 2021-2022, please remember these are only initial plans and things may change, but I know you like us to share details as soon as we can give them to you.
