Dear Parents and Carers
“May each family rediscover family prayer, which helps to bring about forgiveness.” Pope Francis
Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in COVID infection rates across the school both in pupils and school adults. This has meant that we have had to move staff around to cover classes where adults aren’t present. With this in mind and to help keep everyone safe please can all parents arrange to test their children for COVID 19 if they are unwell and if children test positive they should self-isolate.
The multi-skills festival was cancelled at the very last minute leaving our team of Year 1 and 2 pupils very disappointed. Let us all hope that this event will be rescheduled in the very near future.
On Saturday 26th March we are participating in the Ashford District Schools Football Tournament. I am sure you will join me in wishing our team from Year 5 and 6 the very best of luck. I am sure that they will give their very best.
