Dear parent / carers,

I do hope you and your family have enjoyed the break over Christmas despite the restrictions.

The Government’s announcement yesterday in light of rising coronavirus cases means that our school will not be reopening for most pupils next week. Given the rising concerns about the new strain of Covid-19 and its rapid spread, Ark Priory Primary Academy will only open to children of essential workers and vulnerable groups on Thursday 7th January (to allow for planning and preparation) and until, initially, 18th January. We did not expect this announcement so are currently putting measures in place to support these restrictions. This link explains the criteria for these different groups: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintain...

We will be sending out a form on Monday that must be completed and sent back to us if you believe your situation falls into one of the outlined categories and would like your child to attend our ‘community classrooms’ from Thursday 7th January 2021. If you do not meet the criteria outlined above, then your child MUST remain at home until at least the 18th January 2021 when the Government will review their plans. We will inform our community as soon as we have any further updates/information about the return to school. For those children at home, class teachers will provide a home-learning programme, details of which will be set out next week to classes and posted on the school website.

I know that this will be a worrying and uncertain time for you, but I would like to reassure you, that the staff and I will respond as quickly as we can to the changing situation. All decisions will be made in the best interests of the children and staff, using the resources available to us. The rising rate of infection in our community is naturally of concern to us. Please be assured that your child’s heath and wellbeing is our top priority, and we will be reviewing all our safety procedures before children return to school.

With every good wish to you all for 2021,
Daniela Grasso | Head of School
