Dear Parents and Carers,
All of our 27 schools will close their doors today for the traditional October mid-term
break. Given the stresses and strains associated with management of bubbles and the
attention to fine detail linked with risk assessments, hygiene and pupil and staff
wellbeing, it has been a period in school life like no other.
I want to thank you for your continued support and for your partnership since
September, this cooperation has ensured our children have been able to access such a
caring, nurturing and supportive learning environment.
As a trust, we are committed to supporting the community drive to eradicate the virus
and to this end, we would encourage parents, carers and visitors to our schools to
ensure where possible adherence to all social distance and face-covering guidance.
With the tier two restrictions in place, the traditional Halloween festivities will be limited,
however, I do hope that the break from school is enjoyed and I look forward to welcoming
everyone back safely on Monday 2 November.
