    Letter to Parents

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    I write with further information about plans to extend the opening of our school. Today we have learned that the Directors of Holy Family Multi Academy Trust (HFCMAT) have decided that we will not open our school on 1stJune.  This is in line with guidance from our Local authority & Diocese. The reason for this is that we do not have sufficient evidence to ensure that risks could be managed effectively if we return at this time.

Pupils at SJP benefit from structure, routine and consistency; factors which we believe not only support them in their learning but also in their mental wellbeing too.

    Dear Parents and Carers

    I thought it timely to write to you as we approach the planned half-term break. I’ve hesitated to do so, given the fluidity of the situation in which we find ourselves and the conflicting messages that have been coming our way from a variety of sources.
