SCHOOL MEAL ARRANGEMENTS
Meals will be given to children who are in school.
The Local Authority and Government are currently planning how families of Pupil Premium Children who are not in school will be supported in respect of a meal being provided. This may take the form of food vouchers or a food bank collection system. You will be informed when school receives further directives from the Local Authority.
YEAR SIX SATS EXAMS
The Government have announced that SATS exams will be cancelled this year. We will update further according to any additional government information.
Please ensure your child has an up to date inhaler in school. Check expiry dates.
Please ensure we have your up-to-date contact details as all communications will be given via text message and the schools website:
The current isolation advice remains the same:
We know that the measures schools are having to take will affect many families. We also know that you will understand why such actions are being taken. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation and look forward to the time we are able to resume normal school routines.
