Happy New Year - almost! I had hoped I would not need to write to you during the holidays and we would see the children back next Tuesday but as you will have heard on the news, schools in Sutton have been closed to most pupils until at least the 18th January 2021. This is due to the high levels of virus and transmission in the local area and is very much a last resort.
Children at home:
The aim of closure is obviously to reduce transmission in the community and the safest place for your child is at home within their own household.
This is obviously all very disappointing however I know that you, your children and our staff will do everything possible to reduce the impact and maintain the resilience and positive attitudes that make RHJ such a great place. The most important thing is that everyone stays safe and well – the rest can be fixed!
