Following the government announcement on Wednesday 30th December, school will open as normal on Monday 4th January. This will include breakfast club. As the government are constantly reviewing the situation, we will keep you posted of any changes.

Cheshire West and Chester have now entered tier 4. This means that you must stay at home. You may only leave your home if you have a ‘reasonable excuse’. You must not meet socially indoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble. This includes New Years Eve. Please be respectful of this rule as we plan to welcome you children back next week.

Parents have been on the whole very good at respecting our request for all adults to wear a face covering on school premises. Please continue to abide by this for the safety of others.

Education and childcare

You can leave home for education related to the formal curriculum or training, registered childcare, under-18 sport and physical activity, and supervised activities for children that are necessary to allow parents/carers to work, seek work, or undertake education or training. Parents can still take their children to school, and people can continue existing arrangements for contact between parents and children where they live apart. This includes childcare bubbles.

We very much look forward to seeing the children again on Monday. Children who have previously received a shielding letter should not attend school. Please seek advice from your child’s medical professional should you require clarification on this. Any children who are now shielding again, will have access to remote learning as they previously have done and their class teacher will make regular contact to check on their progress.

Children who live with a clinically extremely vulnerable person are advised that they should attend school.

For any children who are self-isolating, please contact the school office to report this. If any families have been abroad over the Christmas period, please ensure that you have followed government guidance to self-isolate if your destination was not one in the ‘travel corridor’. Again please notify the school office if your child is unable to attend for this reason.

We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a happy and prosperous 2021!

Mrs L Roberts
