Dear Parents and Carers,
Due to the snow over the weekend and the forecast overnight low temperatures, St Bede’s will be closed tomorrow (Monday) to all pupils, including Key Worker and Vulnerable Children.
We have consulted with the MAC site team and we would not be able to ensure that the site is fully safe for pupils to access by tomorrow morning. This would then impact on COVID regulations that we are currently having to enforce with regards to space and sharing of facilities i.e Toilets.
Live lessons are also CANCELLED tomorrow (Monday). We strongly feel that a day away from a screen and enjoying time outdoors safely would benefit student wellbeing. As an aside, we are looking to introduce some “non-screen time” as we move forward to support positive wellbeing.
However, if parents wish for their children to complete school work, they can access work from our Core Offer via the SharePoint site. There is no expectation for this to take place tomorrow due to the disruption caused by the weather as we know that other school closures have an impact on our staff and families alike.
We are hoping to resume live lessons and to have Key Worker and Vulnerable Children on site from Tuesday. However, please check your emails and our social media sites.
Stay safe and God bless,
