School staff have been in direct contact with Parents/Carers of those pupils who are directly affected and will be accessing a remote learning package.
We appreciate that the situation may cause inconvenience however we can assure you that we will continue to work tirelessly to try and maintain learning opportunities both in school and at home wherever possible for your children.
I hope that you and your family can continue to support each other and the school through these difficult times.
Thank you for your continued support
