Christmas Holidays

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you all remain safe and well over the Christmas period. Please ensure that if you test positive for Covid during the holidays, you inform the school office: as this will help us to monitor any infections and ensure that everyone receives up to date information.


We return to school on Tuesday 4th January 2022. If at all possible I would like to ask that you and your family use lateral flow tests on either Monday or Tuesday morning. If anyone in your family tests positive then please inform the school office immediately and do not send your child to school.


We are looking forward to seeing you all in January - we have Chinese New Year to celebrate and National Story Telling week. We will also spend some time learning about internet safety. If you gift your children some IT equipment this Christmas please ensure that you are also protecting them with parental controls and privacy settings. Use to find out about games, apps and social media.

There are changes to transport arrangements as from January. Currently, I do not have the final lists of buses, times or pickup points - please go back to Hampshire if you are unsure of anything:


Wishing you all a happy and healthy break


Kind regards

Catherine Le Roux
