Weekly Update - Week 18

For once we have some almost definite news to share.  The government announced that it hopes that it will be safe to reopen schools from March 8th.  We have all been promised that we will have at least two weeks notice of the actual date.  We are expecting a further announcement as to the plans in the week beginning the 22nd Feb.  As always we will let you know what we know when we know it.

Lastly from me I just want to thank you all for your support and help with online learning.  We have said that all any of us can do is do our best.  Next week is the penultimate week of the half term, let’s keep our motivation high and push on through till we can open the school again.
