Dear Parents and Carers
I hope you are well coming to the end of another week? School looks forward to re-opening for Year 5 next Monday.
Several parents have asked about St. Margaret's opening over summer for a summer scheme. We did run a very successful scheme for the first time in October. Our plans for Easter were interrupted by lockdown.
Our intention was to have our first scheme over summer. However, there is an emergency situation arising involving the school drains. Last Monday I arrived in school to find that there was not one useable adult toilet available in the school building. Further investigations today show that part of the drainage system needs digging up and replacing. This includes both inside and outside school. Therefore, school need to shut over summer.
However, I have been working with the Local Authority to try to make alternative arrangements at other venues. I have been told today that information will be available next week.
I am also reading through the Government guidelines issued yesterday. As you probably know, the expectation is that all children will return in September. Clearly, our thoughts are now turning to how this can be done, safely and well.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Lots of love.
