COVID-19 closure January 2021
On 4th January, the Prime minister called for a third national lockdown. This lockdown was similar to the one called in March with schools open to only those of critical workers and children who may be vulnerable. Unlike last time, Google Classroom will be used for remote learning. Please keep checking this page for any updates - as always, SCHOOP will be used to notify you when anything has been updated on our site.

School Closure Letter January 2021
An Online Safety reminder
When else might we close?
We will only close school when it is deemed that it is unsafe to remain open eg, when it is bad weather.
If school is not going to open in the morning, we will send a message through Schoop and we will put a message on the front page of the school website. We will also let Leeds City Council know and they will add our school to their School Closure page. A link can be found here.
If we need to close the school early, we will send a message through Schoop and we will put a message on the school website but also try to contact as many families as possible to ask you to collect your children. This decision is always a difficult one to make and we will only close school early if we are worried that it is not safe to remain at school until the end of the day.
To make sure you receive the information as quickly as possible, we strongly recommend you download the Schoop app as we will use this as our first way to share important messages with families. Further information can be found here. If you have any questions, please see the office staff who will be able to help.
