Important Information from School

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please see below a link to a letter sent to the school by the Minister for Education this morning. As you can see from the letter, schools will not now reopen to pupils until Thursday 6th January. The first two days of term will be used by schools to plan for increased Covid safety measures.

As you can imagine, the reviewing of the risk assessment and possible changes to the operation of the school takes a significant amount of time and organisation so, at present, I am unable to share this with you. However, please be assured that as soon as we are able we will share information with parents and carers.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and Healthy Christmas.

With best wishes,

Mrs Woodford
