Good afternoon all.
I hope you have all been keeping well and have had a lovely Christmas time.
As I am sure you are aware we have moved into tier 4 with further restrictions affecting our community, I therefore just wanted to give a quick update as to our position.
We have checked all published information and Dovedale Primary School will be open as usual from Monday 4th January.
It is expected that all children will return to school on this day as usual.
Although I am sure that some people may be worried about the new strain, its spread and it's impact, we will continue to work extremely hard to manage all risks associated with COVID and will take extra care to make sure our school is the safest place it can be for the children, families and staff.
Our systems so far have proved effective and we will continue to monitor and adjust as necessary. We will continue to follow guidance and ensure the best learning and support provision is in place for our children.
I would ask that you continue to observe distancing guidelines and keep your children with you when dropping off and picking up and do not congregate on the school grounds. This has proved very successful so far and I appreciate your support with this measure.
If you have any concerns please contact me on the firstname.lastname@example.org email and I will respond.
I wish you all a very happy and hope full new year.
