SCHOOL CLOSURE NOTIFICATION

Notification to all parents

FULL GUIDANCE is in the PARENTS MENU in COVID-19 IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Dear Parents, 

Many of you will be aware that we closed Year 5 on Monday. We have also closed a Year 6 class and a Year 2 class today.

 

I have spoken with the Department for Education and the Dudley Children and Young Person’s Team. I need to take action to reduce the risk of a serious outbreak and to reduce the further spread of coronavirus (COVID19) to others in the community.

 

With the support of The Local Authority and the Learning Link Multi Academy Trust Accountable Officer, I have taken the decision to close Dudley Wood Primary School for 6 school days. 

 

The school will close at the end of the day today (Friday 13 November).

 

The school will open again on Tuesday 24 November.

 

The children in 2G will still be self-isolating on Tuesday 24 November and they will return to school on Thursday 26 November. 

 

I know this may cause concern and I apologise for the inconvenience to families. However, I am sure you will support my decision to prioritise the health and safety of all members of our school community. The closure period will create a ‘break’ to reduce the risk of further infection and will allow an additional deep clean of all classrooms. 

 

Home learning is provided via our school website, in the CHILDREN’S menu on the learning at home page from Monday 16  November. 

 

I thank you in advance of your support and hope everyone stays safe and well.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Guest

Headteacher
