Dear Parents/ Carers,

Here is the update from the Government on key workers and other groups. If you are a key worker or your child fits into one of the other groups and you want your child to attend school, please ensure we know by the end of the day. You can do this by filling yesterday’s form in, emailing or ring school. I need to know numbers for Monday. 

Many thanks

If you have more than one child in school, they may also join you for lunch – siblings only please. Please do not arrive before 11.30am as we do not have the space to let you into school.
