Thank you for your support over this past half term.
We are thrilled that we have been able to open and operate the school without too much disruption.
Over the course of this week, you will have received emails from us regarding our Online Learning Platform for all members of school. We hope not to have to take recourse to this method of teaching, but feel it is better to be prepared.
You will also receive information on our Parent/Teacher meeting arrangements which will take place via Teams during the week commencing 9th November.
Please do take the time to read all this information carefully and contact us – firstname.lastname@example.org – if you encounter any problems.
We wish you a very happy and restful Autumn break and look forward to seeing everyone on 2nd November.
With best wishes,
