Dear parents and carers
 
We are now facing increasing challenges safely staffing classes because numbers of our staff are waiting for results of Covid tests, are self-isolating or are having to care for their own children who are unable to be at school. We are not moving staff between classes as this would compromise their 'bubble' and add to the risk of increasing the spread of infections. This is meaning that we are having to close some classes for short periods until the staffing situation comes back up to safe numbers.

I am sorry this is having to happen but I am sure you appreciate we are only doing it as a last resort and when we are concerned about caring safely for your children whilst they are with us. If we need to close your child's class we will contact you the day before (including over the weekend) and so could you please insure that we have an up to date contact number for you where appropriate and possible we will provide learning resources or support whilst your child is at home. 
 
Thank you for your understanding and support.
 
Best wishes
 
Daniel
