This was sent to parents and carers earlier today:
Dear parents and carers,
I hope the holiday has been as restful as possible for everyone.
I’m sure you will have all seen last night’s announcement about the re-opening of schools next week. This confirmed that Lewisham’s primary schools will be returning as scheduled next week so Ashmead children will attend school from Tuesday 5th January. Lewisham schools have not been given any information separate to what was announced last night but if we become aware of any changes we will let you know as soon as possible.
Although we have had great news about the vaccines recently it is also clear that the challenges presented by Covid are going to continue for quite some time. Whatever challenges this term brings, safety will always remain our number one priority. We are, of course, reviewing the risk assessment and will update you on any changes we make.
We’re looking forward to seeing all the children next week.
