The following COVID message was sent out to parents on Friday 25 September 2020: 

We don’t want to disappoint anyone but despite the national changes in COVID rates, etc, we have nothing new to tell you about COVID this week.

Face mask usage is steadily increasing, improvements in COVID practice and facilities are quietly happening and being added to the risk assessments, and a couple of cases in families have been sharply and effectively dealt with so they have not impacted in school.

It won’t likely stay like this but we’ll take five ‘peaceful’ days and be grateful.

Instead, enjoy the videos that went out for our Virtual Open Evening which prove that despite a pandemic schools can still be great places to be: https://www.friaryschool.com/2020/09/22/virtual-open-evening-welcoming-year-6s-to-the-friary-school/

Have a great weekend – our Headteacher is off to collect more lucky heather whilst avoiding walking under any ladders.
