Pupils & Families

Information for Families

You will be aware that the government has instructed schools to tests staff and students. The following therefore applies:

Primary aged children will return to school as normal on the 5th January, following our scheduled INSET day on 4th January.

Families of secondary aged children will be contact by their school leaders on 4th January to agree the returning schedule from 6th January.

We expect all students to return to school fully on 11th January.   However, where staff and student are required to self-isolate as a result of testing, our remote learning programme will be activated immediately.

We thank you for your continued support.
