Dear Parent / Carer,
The trade unions have taken action in relation to the safety of having schools open given the high levels of COVID 19 and the new more transmissible strain of the virus. As a result we envisage having a number of staff who will not be attending tomorrow and we have made the hard decision to close the school for our students tomorrow. We will look at staffing numbers and whether we can accommodate having students back in school as soon as we can and will keep you informed of any decisions as soon as they are made. I sincerely apologise for the lateness of this information and fully appreciate the undoubted challenge that these decisions place on you but the safety of our staff and students needs to be at the forefront of any decisions that we make.
