Christmas Events - Update

Dear Parents,


Due to there still being a high number of cases of Covid in the local community, I have taken the decision to video the Christmas Performances, at both schools, and share them on-line as we did last year. It is sad that we are unable to invite parents in, but the risks of so many people being in one place is too high. However, we did have a lot of parents comment on how good it was to have the performances on-line as they could then share them with other family members, some on the other side of the world, whereas normally only 2 adults could attend. 


Sadly, we are also cancelling the Junior School Cake Sale and the Infant School Christmas Fair.  The risks of Covid transmission are high as these are both very busy and crowded events. I am sure you understand we just want to keep everyone safe.


However, we are hoping to continue with Christmas Workshops and still invite parents in. The invites will require you to book your place so that we can monitor numbers and make the necessary arrangements to be as Covid Safe as we can be.


Planned activities for the children will still continue including their parties, Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas Lunches.


A decision will be made about Open Afternoons and the Carol Service, nearer the time.


It is frustrating that we are still not able to return to Pre Covid arrangements but I do feel we are moving in the right direction by being able to hold some of the events which were not possible at all last year.


Stay safe,


Mrs Sheila Pape

Executive Headteacher
