We really appreciate all the amazing work you aere all haivng to do on the fly. We had approximately 40% of the school away today with a range of sickness, family isolating or because of contracting Covid. We also have been impacted by staff having to isolate and as a result Room 6 students who attended school worked alongside Room 1. We hope all those working through isolation and Covid infections a speedy recovery. 

As indicated in previous newsletters we will move to a hybrid learning platform if the need arises. Currently we can manage all students attending school and all the teachers, that can be onsite are prepared to continue with their learning programmes. Just like you, we are reacting as best we cqn for the changing situations.

We do have access to some hard packs and I know class teachers are providing access to learning through Seesaw and google classroom. 

For the next few days the office will be closed and we ask that all queries are send to or phoned in. 

We look forward to seeing everyone back on deck as soon as practical.
