Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to you with the latest information I can share with you regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. We are following the Government and Department for Education directives in keeping school open whilst encouraging regular handwashing and avoiding non-essential ‘large gatherings’.
We have taken the decision to cancel the following events in the next few weeks:
Tuesday 17th March – Year 3 collective worship
Wednesday 18th March – Reception assembly
Tuesday 24th March – Year 1 Collective worship
Wednesday 25th March – Drama production of ‘Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits’
Thursday 26th March – Year 5 Mass at GA Church
Thursday 26th March - Drama production of ‘Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits’
Thursday 2nd April – Parents evening – postponed – more details to follow
Monday 6th April – Joint Lenten Service with OLOL for Year 3 and 4 children
Tuesday 7th April – Year 2 Collective worship
Wednesday 8th April – Friends of OLOL Chocolate Bingo night
We have a number of children currently off school with illnesses and I thank those parents for being vigilant and keeping to the guidelines set by the Government. If your child has a persistent cough and temperature they will need to remain at home for a 7 day period. If they develop these symptoms in school, we will try to remove them from the main body of the class until they can be picked up to avoid spreading the infection to others. The relative success of these measures will absolutely rely upon parents following this advice.
We will review the ongoing situation every day and keep parents and carers informed at every stage through the school's App and the school's website. Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding with this ongoing situation.
Mrs J.E. DaviesExecutive Headteacher
