Dear Parents/Carers of Year 6 children

Please read the attached letter very carefully. I have been on the phone to Public Health all afternoon and the decision has been taken to close the Year 6 bubble. All key information is included in the letter and my contact details are on there as well should you need to ask me any urgent questions.

I understand how disruptive this is and I can only apologise for the timing of this letter. I hope you understand that I am being guided by Public Health and decisions are out of my control. I hope you and you children are well and we look forward to seeing you again on Friday 27th November.

Best Wishes

Please read the attached letter very carefully. I have been on the phone to Public Health all afternoon and the decision has been taken to close the Year 6 bubble. All key information is included in the letter and my contact details are on there as well should you need to ask me any urgent questions.

I understand how this can cause concern, however, the guidance from Public Health is that only the Year 6 bubble is to close down. All other bubbles are safe to continue attending school. That includes siblings of children in Year 6. We have a robust risk assessment that is followed by all staff and this has been designed to ensure there is no direct contact between bubbles.

Please could you email me directly rather than interact with the staff at drop off and pick up if you have any questions you need to be answered urgently. We are also advising that parents/carers wear face masks when dropping off and picking up. This is not compulsory, however, we would appreciate your co-operation with this.

Best Wishes

Coniston Primary School opened in September 1999, following the amalgamation of Coniston Infants and Junior School. We are proud of our children and believe that every child matters.

Our vision statement captures the aspirations we have for our school:

“Working together we can succeed”

This vision, and all we do in school, is underpinned by our shared values of trust, respect and pride.

We have 7 classes with children from 4-11 years old. Patchway Sure Start Children’s Centre and St Chad’s Pre School are also based on our school site providing a variety of opportunities and support for families with young children. For further information please see Quick Links below.

On behalf of the whole school community, may we welcome you to Coniston Primary School. Having visited the website, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at school.
