I am writing to you with an update following all the news in the media around schools over the holidays. As far as we understand, primary schools will be opening as usual on the 4th January 2021. We will obviously update you if we have any new information.
As the rates of infection are rising, I would like to make one change to ensure everyone in our school community is as safe as they can be. From the beginning of the term in January, the staff here will have the option to wear a facemask or visor in school when appropriate.
Government guidance still states that this does not apply to children in primary schools and in early years settings.
We are looking forward to a healthy and successful new year; please rest assured we will put everything in place we can to ensure our school community is as safe as it could possibly be.
Mrs J Byrne
