4th January 2021: School reopening Covid Update
04th January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
As the Government constantly change their advice in relation to the pandemic, schools tend to find out the latest news when you do; please bear with us as we try and put any plans in place based on last minute information.
Due to concern about the higher transmissibility of the new Covid-19 variant, the NEU (Teacher Union) has recommended to its members not to return to school at the start of term because the workplace is unsafe.
Our COVID-19 risk assessment available on our school website is rigorous and robust and having consulted our staff, we are delighted to state that we expect to be open for all classes (Reception to Year 6) from tomorrow the 5th January.
Unfortunately, due to staff isolating and staff absence we cannot open Nursery for the next 2 weeks.
We would like to thank our fantastic team who have made the decision to stay in school, where it is safe, to teach your children.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

3rd January 2021: Covid update
03rd January 2021
As many of you will have seen in the national news, the education unions are today advising their teacher members and support staff not to return to school on Tuesday 5th January for the first two weeks of the Spring Term.
The unions are advising our staff that it is not safe to return to the classroom due to the new COVID-19 strain, however the Government are advising that it is, based on school’s risk assessment, which has been agreed by Leeds City Council.
As a result, Leeds City Council have asked us to contact our staff members to see if any are following the union’s advice of not returning to work on Tuesday. If members of staff follow the advice of their unions then some class bubbles will need to be closed and children will be required to access remote learning at home for the next two weeks.
As you’ll appreciate this is very last-minute advice and our senior staff members have been working today to put plans in place as quickly and as efficiently as possible. At this moment in time, we do not know if any of our classes will be affected, but we will update you by tomorrow afternoon once we have gathered more information.
Should any of our classes be affected, we wanted to give parents as much notice as possible. We would appreciate if you could check our school website and Facebook page tomorrow as any further updates will be posted online.
