School Closed from Monday 23rd March until further notice


Dear Parents/Carers

As you will know, school will close at 3:15pm tomorrow, Friday 20th March 2020, until further notice. We will still be operating After School Provision tomorrow for those who have already signed up for this, but school will be closed from Monday 23rd March.

A very small minority of pupils will be eligible for childcare from Monday. If your child falls into one of the categories of eligibility you will be contacted tomorrow by the school.

We must stress that when we open on Monday, the services we provide will look and feel very different as this will be childcare provision, not class teaching as usual.

If your child is in school today, they will bring home a parent information update sheet. It is vital that this is returned by 9:00am tomorrow. If your child is not in school today, please complete the attached sheet and return by 9:00am tomorrow to:

We hope our learning packs are a source of normality for our pupils at this time of uncertainty.

I appreciate that this is a highly stressful time for our families. On behalf of the staff at Garfield we hope that you all stay healthy and positive. We will keep you all in our thoughts.

My very best wishes

Mrs Thomas
