The Department for Education yesterday sent an email to schools setting out their expectations for the end of term regarding COVID-19. It has been suggested that schools can close a day early and have the last day as a virtual teacher training day. However, we will not be changing when our last day of term is as we already have things in place for the day and also have our training programme planned out.
Our last day will remain as Friday 18th December and the children will return on Tuesday 5th January 2021.
With so much disruption over the past few months, I do not want to cause families undue stress by changing plans last minute.
The other part of the information sent into schools yesterday relates to our duty of supporting with contact tracing. For any confirmed pupil cases of COVID-19, up to and including Thursday 24th December, please notify me by email email@example.com
