At this point, we are still anticipating that school will open to children again on Tuesday 5th January, as stated in this morning’s letter.
However, there have been developments late this afternoon which parents need to know about.
I wanted you to be aware that there is a growing call for all primary schools to be closed until 18th January, as is happening in secondary schools.
Wolverhampton Local Authority have expressed their concerns about the safety of primary schools opening to the Government, as have a number of teaching unions and we know of a number of schools locally who are also planning to close.
We are watching this action and outcomes very closely, and if we hear any more information, we shall let you know as soon as we do.
We will update parents again in the morning regarding any further updates we get.
With many thanks once again for your on-going understanding and support.
