Dear Parents and Carers,
Following the Prime Ministers briefing this evening, we are hoping to seek further clarification regarding the implications for our school tomorrow. We will keep you fully updated once we have received further guidance. Thank you all for your continued support during this unprecedented time.
We understand that many of you will have questions about the weeks ahead. Please be assured that we are passing all the information we have along to you as we receive it. As I am sure you can imagine, every member of the school staff will be working very hard to ensure that the next two days are as smooth as possible. I am also exceptionally proud of the staff as they prepare work for your child/ren and school closures.
We would like to achieve something positive on Friday itself as our last normal day of operations for some time. To that end, we will be allowing children to come to school in colourful-rainbow and cheerful clothing in exchange for an item of tinned or packet food, which can be distributed to those who need it most within our school community. We know that everyone is anxious about the current climate, but we would like to try and do something as a school community to help people who need it most.
The VERY best of wishes at this difficult time. Every day, I have been talking to the children about smiling...it is so important at the moment. I will be in touch as soon as possible with further updates and plans.
Thanks again for your support to myself and the staff.
