Update from the Headteacher – Friday 23 April 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am delighted to report that we once again up and running!  Despite the challenges that we have had along the way, we are now fully reopened and all pupils have returned to full-time, in-school learning.  We have thoroughly enjoyed having our pupils back in the building and all are making good progress with their learning since their return on Tuesday.  There may be other challenges that we will need to face as the term proceeds but will face them together as a school community as we always do.  But for now……onwards and upwards!
