I am very sorry to write to you at this very late stage. Many of you will have seen the announcement this evening that the government have decided to close all Primary schools with effect from tomorrow. Therefore, Salisbury Road WILL NOT be opening to pupils tomorrow.
With very little notice we now have to put into action our remote learning plan and provision for key workers. Unfortunately, at this time in the evening it is practically impossible to pull together a plan that allows us to do this from tomorrow. Therefore, a full remote learning curriculum will be provided for your children from WEDNESDAY 6th JANUARY.
The school will open for key worker and vulnerable children from Wednesday 6th January. If you believe you meet the key worker criteria, please fill in the key worker request form (on the link provided with the message you were sent). Alternatively, please contact the school office by 12pm tomorrow morning for us to consider your request. If you have any other way of providing childcare, you should not request a school place. We will confirm with you by 3pm tomorrow (Tuesday) whether we can grant your request.
Teachers will be providing live lessons from Wednesday and will be in touch with instructions for lessons tomorrow. In preparation, please make sure your child is able to log onto their Microsoft Teams account.
This is not how any of us wanted to start the new year and we very much hope that we can be back in school together soon.
If you have any specific questions please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office first thing tomorrow morning.
Take care and stay safe!
Ciara Moran - Executive Headteacher
