IMPORTANT – partial school closure 24th-26th January As you know, the number of children testing positive at school has been increasing every day. Despite our best efforts, inevitably the staff have also tested positive for Covid. We have 5 members of staff with Covid and further staff who are isolating and it has now become impossible to staff all the classes. We are unable to get any supply teachers, so Mr Glover has taken two classes into the hall today, but as you can imagine, this is not sustainable and could lead to further spread of the virus. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to close Snow-leopards, Panda class and Tiger class for Monday 24th, Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th January. If you have a nursery, reception, year 1, year 2 or year 3 pupil, please do not send them to school until Thursday 27th January. Mr Glover and Mr Hughes are the two remaining healthy teachers, so we hope to pool the remaining teaching assistants with them to keep Jaguars and Rhinos in school. Thank you all for your understanding and support with carrying out lateral flows at home. Please continue to phone Baschurch if you need to speak to someone or get any clarification. Mrs Smith could be back on Monday, fingers crossed! Please do keep checking our website for updates as we may get more information regarding the remaining staff over the weekend.
