School Closure Information

Please find below up-to-date information:

Dear Parents/Carers
I am sure you will be aware that we currently have a spike in cases of Covid 19 in North Somerset and that Weston Hospital has closed to new patients due to this increase. LSP have therefore taken the difficult decision to delay the reopening of the school to other groups. Please read their statement.
This means that our plans for next week have been put on hold.
Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y6 should remain at home next week and continue to access home learning from drop box (or ILD for nursery).
New keyworkers due to start from 1st June should also remain at home as we have capped our numbers to reduce the chance of spreading Covid 19. This has been discussed and agreed with LSP due to the large increase of keyworker numbers.
Keyworkers that have been using our site during term 5 will be allowed to come into school and will need to book in as usual.
LSP will be carefully reviewing the increase in cases and talking with Public Health before making the decision to reopen the school to more children. We hope this will be during the week beginning 8th June but it equally might take longer and we will be in touch on Thursday as we have more details.
I am really sorry to have to send this letter as I know the children were really excited to be coming back to school but the safety of all has to be our paramount concern.
Best Wishes
Andreya Cowan
