Following heavy snow and with freezing conditions due overnight we are monitoring the situation very carefully. We will endeavour to open the school on Monday. To allow staff and keyworker children to travel safely to school, we will open at 10am. Please be aware that there will not be anyone available before this time. Please follow the cleared paths to the classrooms (some routes may differ) and ensure social distancing.

 

We will continue to review the safety of the site and inform you at the earliest possibility if closure is necessary.   

 

Please only take your own journeys to school if it is safe to do so. Thank you, as always, for your support.  

A little note from Droitwich Library-

Once again we find ourselves in lockdown and I would like to thank for the fantastic work you are all doing to keep our children engaged in education in these difficult times. 

 

We would also like to let you know of the services we are currently providing which may assist you in these endeavours.  Firstly, please be aware that we are open, all be it with limited facilities.

  

It is possible to reserve books on line and then collect them.  People are able to do this via our website, logging in with their library card number (username) and the day and month of their birthday (Password) or they can ring 01905 822722 and ask to reserve via the county hub or they can e-mail direct to their local library and request either a specific book or a selection of books i.e. picture books or non-fiction or a particular author or genre.
