NHS Guidance:


Thank you parents, for your messages of thanks and encouragement. A huge thank you also to all those parents who have offered help during the school closure – at some stage we may call on that help.

The whole staff team have been absolutely amazing – keeping calm in what has been a very stressful period. 

You will have received information on how to access your child’s learning pack. The teachers will be updating these on a weekly basis.

Nursery and Reception parents, please do log in to your Tapestry account and post any new learning so that staff can add to their assessments.

School will be open to children of key workers and staff are operating on a rota basis. If any key worker is still able to keep their child at home then please do so to help with social distancing and keeping St John’s staff safe. 

Please do follow the guidelines if a member of your family becomes ill. Key worker parents will receive a letter later today with information about entry to school next week.

The weeks ahead are going to be a challenge and we would ask you to please be mindful about how you talk about coronavirus with your child/ren. BBC Newsround is a good place to start.

The office will not be manned during school closure but if you need to contact the school email

Keep safe everyone – wash hands regularly and keep your distance.
