Headteacher Message board
Dear Newker parents and carers,
We have currently closed the following bubbles due to positive cases:
Nursery bubble, Year 1 bubble, Year 2 bubble, Year 3 bubble, Year 6 bubble.
Nursery & Year 1 Children and staff who are close contacts have been asked to self-isolate until midnight on Monday 12th July. These bubbles will re-open on Tuesday 13th July.
Year 2 & Year 3 Children and staff who are close contacts have been asked to self-isolate until midnight on Thursday 15th July. These bubbles will re-open on Friday 16th July.
Year 6 children and staff who are close contacts have now been asked to self-isolate until midnight on Friday 16th July. Sadly, this means that the Y6 bubble will not re-open and Y6 will not return to school before the end of term. We would like to say well done to Year 6 for being a brilliant year group during this very challenging year. They have worked hard and we are all very proud of them. We are really devastated that they have been unable to take part in the usual end of year leavers’ activities. We wish Year 6 lots of luck as they leave Newker to move to their secondary schools in September. We have made arrangements for Year 6 Reports to be collected from a table set up outside of the main office on Wednesday 14th July between 11-12 or Thursday 15th July between 11-12. If any parents or carers cannot make these times, please contact the office to make alternative arrangements.
We do appreciate everyone’s understanding to still follow the recommendations around hand washing, social distancing and wearing masks, as the school still has to operate within our risk assessment following Durham Council's Health & Safety Team guidelines and Covid measures to keep everyone safe.
