I wrote to you last week following the Government’s announcement just before the New Year about when pupils would return to school this term.
I am sorry to be writing to you again so soon on this subject. However, as you may have seen, the Prime Minister has announced a new national lockdown because of rising infection rates of Covid-19 and to try to prevent the further spread of the virus.
As part of this, all primary schools, secondary schools and colleges in England, including our school, Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy, are to be closed until at least the end of half term in February, except for children of key workers or vulnerable children.
For further details of the arrangements during the national lockdown, please refer to the letter below:
