Summer term 2020
Parents of critical key workers should let us know by 4pm each day (by email or telephone) whether their child/children will be attending school the following day. This will allow us to make plans for staffing.
Thank you very much for your cooperation.
From Monday 23rd March 2020 school will only be open for children of those parents who have notified us that they are key workers.
Work is being set by teachers for all other children. This can be accessed through class pages.
Please make sure your child is safe online - see our Internet Safety page for further information or click on the document listed below named 'Keeping Children Safe Online'
Please contact us during normal school hours if you need further information. We will keep in touch with regular updates.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation in these difficult circumstances. We hope to see you all again soon. Meanwhile all the staff at Holmes Chapel Primary School send your their good wishes.
