2019-2020 – Whole school blog

Friday 17th July 2020

As we prepare to say goodbye to the children for the summer holidays I want to extend my thanks (and Iā€™m sure yours) for the phenomenal response and resilience that the staff have shown in supporting us to stay open throughout the pandemic.

I know that this has been a particularly challenging time for all our parents and carers ā€“ especially those who have been shielding at home. We have been working hard to develop and review our risk assessments in response to all the guidance (issued daily) from the DfE and to the health advice proffered by our healthcare colleagues.

We have welcomed at least 65% of our children back into school: some for just for a few days and others who have attended full time since the start of lockdown. It has truly been a delight to have them in school.

I have prepared a short film to explain our current plans for September ā€“ please click on the link below to watch this.

NCS September 2020

If there are any changes these will be sent out on ParentMail and emails, so please watch out for these. If you need to contact school for any reason at all through the holidays, remember to also copy in closure.ncs@percyhedley.org.uk as this mailbox is manned by a number of colleagues.

I hope you have a good summer and we look forward to the return of all children at our usual times (9.00am ā€“ 3.30pm) from Wednesday 2nd September.

Best wishes


Jo Allen
