Guidance has been released from the DfE today with regard to the Christmas leave period/ support for track and trace. Schools and post 16 providers have been given the advice to hold an INSET day on the 18th December and that the DfE are recommending that the last day children are in school is on the 17th December.
Together with our Governors and Newport Infant School we are therefore amending dates to the following:
School will finish on Thursday 17th December for the Christmas Holiday.
Friday 18th December: PD Day
Monday 4th January: PD Day
Children will return on Tuesday 5th January.
The PD Day planned for Monday 7th June is now CANCELLED.
If you are a keyworker and this presents challenges to you for Friday 18th December please send me an email (email@example.com) as Mrs Pierce and I may be able to help.
Please note that the timing of this announcement is in response to DFE decisions today and we completely understand the difficulty of such a late decision. As a school we thank you all for your ongoing support as we respond to these evolving updates.
