Parent Update: Monday 11/05/2020

Here is a parent update from Catherine Forrester, Headteacher...

Monday 11th May 2020: 

Dear Parents/Carers

I hope that this update finds you well.

I know that you will be pleased to hear that both Mrs Bailey and Mrs Riley have had their babies.  Henry James Bailey was born on 20th April and Charlotte Ada Riley arrived on 2nd May.  Congratulations to both families!

Our Family Support Adviser, Jacqui Vaughan, is available as a point of contact, if you would like any further guidance or support with any aspect of family life at this time.  Her email address is and I know she will do her very best to give you the support you need.

I am sure you will have watched or read about the Prime Minister’s address last night.

This morning, the leadership team met to discuss the implications for the school opening to some year groups and what the plan for Meadow Vale will be moving forwards.  We are sure you have just as many questions as us about the practicalities of this expectation.  We want you to know that, as soon as we receive clear guidance from the government, we will plan carefully for the move to start to re-open our school and share this with you all.

We want everyone to be back together, just as soon as it is safe to do so, but the well-being of your children and the staff working with them will remain at the centre of any decisions we make.

With very best wishes

Catherine Forrester
