The Executive has announced that schools and other education settings will have the half-term holiday break extended from Monday 19th to Friday 30th October.
Education settings will be closed to all pupils during these two weeks including for vulnerable children and children of key workers. As this is an extension of the half-term break, it is not intended to be used for remote learning, therefore no set online learning will be provided during these times.
Of course, children can still avail of our online learning platforms – Bug Club, The Maths Factor, Purple Mash, MyOn and Accelerated Reader but please be aware that staff will not be setting work or monitoring platforms during this closure time.
To summarise: School will close on Friday 16th October at normal time. School will reopen on Monday 2nd November (unless otherwise directed).
