School Closure – Yesterday the Executive announced that schools and other education settings will have the half-term holiday break extended from 19th to 30th October. The school will remain closed for this two-week period for all pupils.

This period of closure has come at a very difficult time for our pupils. We have been working very hard at school to close the gap in their education as a result of the first lockdown. Therefore, it is important that this is not treated as a two week break for your child, as they may lose so much that they have learned since September. We would ask that the pupils complete any work that has been sent home by the class teacher. There is Numeracy and Literacy homework to be completed and teachers have asked that pupils reading novels, do so on a daily basis. This work will not cover any new topics; all topics have been covered by the class teacher. We appreciate that this may be difficult for some families as they try to work and provide childcare on a daily basis, but by having your child staying engaged with their school work the return to school on 2nd November will be much easier for all.

Please follow any guidance that has been issued by the PHA and remain safe during these difficult times.
