Welcome to Crompton Primary!


Dear Parents and Carers

Firstly, I apologise for the lateness of this letter. You may have heard the Prime Minister state on a special news bulletin at 8.00p.m. today, that schools must close from tomorrow and be open only for key worker and vulnerable children. All other children must remain at home and participate in online learning.

You will appreciate that this is challenging for school to organise at this late hour, however, we propose to do the following:

School will be open tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January 2021) from 8.45 a.m. to 3.15p.m. for the vulnerable children and the children of key workers.

Please view the document via the following link to see if your child/ren fall into one of the qualifying categories.


If you believe that your child is vulnerable or that you qualify as a key worker, please bring your child to school at 8.45 a.m. tomorrow morning. Senior leaders will be on hand to help with your queries as best we can. Please be aware that this guidance may change and we will do our best to keep you updated.

If your child is not classed as vulnerable or you are NOT a key worker please keep your child at home.

Work will be provided for children at home (Years One to Six) via Google Classrooms. All children have been given a log in and know how to use Google classrooms. Children in Reception will be set tasks via Tapestry.

Nursery will be open for all children to access their normal provision.

We will continue to communicate with you over the next few days to ensure that children are accessing the correct provision. I hope that you will bear with us during this challenging time and once again, I thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Lara Beaumont
