Christmas Events

Dear Parents and Carers,

It is with regret that we are not going to be able to hold our Christmas events in person in its traditional form. Although our covid rates are falling, they are still too high to be able to have multiple parents on site and in confined areas. We have not taken this decision lightly, and appreciate that many of you will be as disappointed as we are, but we must play our part in safeguarding the whole community by not having large scale gatherings which could spread Covid-19.

However, we do not want you or the children to miss out and so the productions will be going ahead so that children still get the experience of performing, and these will be recorded for you to watch at home at your own leisure.

Please see details below:

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,
