As you are probably aware, the government’s guidance on the coronavirus has changed from the ‘contain’ phase to one of delaying the spread of the virus. We are getting in touch to let you know what we’re doing in light of this, and what we expect from all of you, to help make sure our school community keeps safe and calm.
We have made the decision to POSTPONE the planned Parents’ Evenings this week. Parents’ Evenings will now take place on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd April. If you have already made an appointment with your child’s class teacher, they will transfer straight across to the new dates, for example, if your appointment was on Wednesday 18th March, it will now be on Wednesday 22nd April.
As you may be aware, we have had a number of children off school with a vomiting bug recently. To help prevent the spread of germs and sickness, I have arranged for a deep clean of the school to take place during the evening of Tuesday 17th March. Please be assured that this is to stop the spread of the sickness bug and is not connected to coronavirus.
Our Year 5/6 residential to PGL at Claythorpe Manor next week is still going ahead as planned. We have been working closely with PGL to ensure that all necessary precautions are in place.

If your child is unwell, you should contact the school office to report their absence as usual.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
If you have recently changed your phone number, it is very important that you tell the school office so we have your up to date contact information.
Please make sure you drop off and collect your child promptly each day.
The NHS 111 telephone helpline can offer useful advice and help. Please call them if you need to discuss symptoms for any member of your family.
It is a difficult time and we appreciate that families are anxious and worried. It is important that we keep each other safe.
