Statement For Parents
St Nicholas Priory Primary CE VA Primary School has taken the precautionary step of closing to the pupils of key workers today, following notification of a case of Covid-19.
The decision to close was taken following positive confirmation that a keyworker parent had tested positive for coronavirus.
At present their child has no symptoms and closure is purely precautionary, but the families of other key worker children who had been attending school, along with staff members, have been informed of the situation.
They should now follow government self-isolation and testing guidelines.
Maria Grimmer, headteacher, commented, “The safety of our pupils and staff is always paramount, and closure will enable us to make the school safe for planned return following the half-term holiday. Our thoughts go out to those families who now have the worry of waiting for test results.”
She continued, “We will keep our Priory families up to date via text, e-mail and our social media channels about our plans to re-open on June 8th for Y6 pupils.”
Your child is able to access their Purple Mash login whilst at home. Their teacher will update To Do tasks that your child can complete.
Y5 and Y6 have access to Google Classroom where their teachers will upload tasks for your child to complete. Children can communicate with their teachers via Google classroom.
Please ensure your Class Dojo details are up to date. You will be able to communicate with your child’s class teacher through this.
