Update 15/05/2020:

Dear Parents and Carers,

You will have seen all the publicity recently following the Government’s suggestion we might soon be able to open our primary schools to Early Years, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children. At present this is only a possibility and we will be asking parents of these children what they think in a survey later today. Please be assured, we will not be opening any of our schools until we consider the time is right and we are assessing all the Government guidance alongside the information we have from professional associations and others. We will wait for further guidance from the Government before making any decisions and will advise you as soon as possible when we do.

With best wishes

David Horn
