The Local Authority are currently in discussion with the Department of of Education over primary School openings in Tier 4 areas. While these discussions take place, Essex County Council have stated we must take a remote learning day on 5th - being open only to key worker children.
We sincerely apologise for the late notice of the school closure on 5th January. As a school we are as frustrated as many of the parents at the last minute announcements and u-turns.
As the majority of staff are also working parents, we can fully understand the difficulties this places many of you in re childcare. Again, we apologise but assure you that we do inform the parent community as soon as we are made aware of changes.
We will endeavour to update you on any development as soon as we are made aware. Please keep an eye the website and Twitter over the coming days.
