A very happy New Year to all our readers!

Today we welcomed all pupils back into school following a staggered start to the term to facilitate on site asymptomatic COVID testing. We thank pupils, parents and carers for their support and patience as we worked in positive partnership to reduce transmission after a period of social mixing during the holidays.

We also thank our superb team of volunteers for giving their time to the test centre to enable us to get pupils back into school promptly with limited impact on the rest of the school.

Mrs Harrison-Jones (Headteacher) wrote to parents/carers at the beginning of the week to provide a brief update regarding the beginning of a new school term; we endeavour to keep parents and carers informed as necessary with the changes to Government Guidance and their implications for schools.

As a staff we very much look forward to the Spring Term ahead – as is the case every term there will be lots going on and lots for the pupils to get involved with as part of our curricular and extracurricular provision. Do keep an eye on the calendar for forthcoming events.
