We have just been informed that all “face to face” learning in Newport primary schools will finish on Wednesday 16th December. The decision has been made due to the significant rise in cases in Newport.
Home learning (blended learning) for all pupils will take place on Thursday 17th December and Friday 18th December. Therefore, school is closed and all pupils will stay at home for these two days and engage in this type of learning to ensure they are not together in classrooms.
Class teachers will provide learning activities for their pupils via ClassDojo and Google Classrooms.
All staff have worked tirelessly since September to ensure that the school is in a position to provide blended learning if necessary. Please support your child in completing activities that their class teacher sets for them.
School starts back on Monday 4th January 2021 (usual start times, entrances and exits).
Please can we take this opportunity to remind parents to keep children at home if they, or anyone in their household, has symptoms or is awaiting a test result.
Please try, where possible, to minimise all contact (in line with Government regulations) to keep everyone safe.
The decision to close the school for these 2 days has been made to keep families and staff safe to enjoy the Christmas break.
Many thanks for your support, patience and understanding.
