Update from Mrs Naldrett

Dear parents/ carers


You will have seen in Boris Johnson's announcement at 8pm that all schools will be closing to the majority of pupils with immediate effect until at least February half term. 


I can only apologise for the mixed messages that both schools and parents have received in recent days, I fully understand and empathise with how frustrating this is and how last minute the notice has been. 


Gatehouse will be open to key worker and vulnerable pupils as we were in March 2020, thank you to all of you who have completed the survey sent out earlier today, we have had over 270 completed but we are still missing some pupils, so if you have not completed the survey for all your children at our school then please can you do this as soon as possible. 


Please can key worker/ vulnerable pupils that will be in school tomorrow arrive at the main gate between 8.40am - 9.00am, please ensure that only 1 adult drops off and that all adults wear a face covering. Members of the school's leadership team will be there to meet the children. Pick up will be 3.20pm at the main gate.


Attached is a letter from the First Federation Trust, it is important that you read this as it contains important information.


I will be in touch again in the following days,  when we have further clarity on the school's plan. 


Thank you for your support and understanding
