Letter to Parents/Carers - 8th Jan 2021

Dear Parent or Carer,

As we reach the end of the first school week of 2021 I am just messaging you to say well done.

It has not been the start to the new year we were hoping for in terms of the pandemic situation.  But everyone has rallied and made a huge effort to keep going.

School has been unusual this week with over 1000 pupils working remotely.  Unfortunately, the virus continues to spread in our community and this has had a negative impact on our staffing levels this week.

We have also had what seem like continual updates and changes to policy and practice, with particular regard to examinations. 

I am sure things will start to settle at some point and we can plan strategies with greater certainty.

I hope you all have a good weekend and a rest from the home learning you richly deserve.

Stay safe and well.



Scott McGuinness
