I hope that you, your families and friends have all managed to enjoy some Christmas magic over the past 10 days, although I appreciate this will have looked very different to previous years.
You will undoubtedly be aware of the many government updates over the past couple of weeks with regards to Covid 19. In Devon, we are now in Tier 3 (Very High due to a high local prevalence in many of our council boroughs). This will NOT impact your children’s ability to attend primary school. Gatehouse will be open for all children from Tuesday 5th January. We will continue to use our current Covid 19 preventative measures which will be in constant review against government guidance.
Please be assured, that as a school, we will continue to work tirelessly to protect all children and staff as best we can during these challenging times.
As a reminder, the forecast looks ‘cold’ on our return, please ensure that the children have plenty of layers for within classroom learning (classrooms need to be well ventilated) and coats, hats and gloves for play/lunchtimes.
Please enjoy the final few days of the holiday (hopefully the rain has now stopped for a few days!) and have a good new year. We are all looking forward to welcoming you back on the 5th January 2021.
Head of School
