Exceptional Closures

Dear Parent / Guardian,

I apologise for the extremely late notice but following discussions between myself & our Board of Governors and in conjunction with St. Patricks PS & Drumlins IPS we have taken the decision to close the school for the rest of the week to all pupils. This additional time will allow the teachers and Classroom Assistants to prepare a greater range of home learning for when schools are closed due to COVID 19.

I trust you support this decision and see it is one we do not make lightly.

Each teacher will be sending some work home with your child today and be following this with additional work and instructions should we not be reopening on Monday as we currently plan to do.

We, as a school community, are extremely concerned for the health & safety of our pupils and their families and I, as Principal , am worried for my staff and theirs at this time of uncertainty.

Thank you for your continuing understanding and support,

Mr M. Moore
