The Government have produced information about the national restrictions from 5th November and what it means for you and your family.

 

Please can I respectfully request that you follow these guidelines to keep everyone in our school community as safe as possible. It can be extremely stressful for our staff when parents do not follow our requests. We aim to ensure that we can get the children in and out of school as quickly and as efficiently as possible, and in the safest way for everyone. Failure to assist, may result in action being taken by the police.

 

Please be kind to each other during these uncertain times. 

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

Miss S Millard

Headteacher
