18 Dec A Message From Us 18.12.20
We have been faced with a particularly challenging year. I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your unwavering support throughout. St Matthias is a very special school, this is down to the children, the staff and you, the wonderful parents and carers . We are thankful for the trust and faith you place in us to keep your children safe and give them the best quality education.
We share in the concerns and worries around the rising cases of Covid in the area. As a school we have only three children who have tested positive for Covid, which is low for the borough but still concerning. It means we have three bubbles closed and have closed our play centre until the end of term. Those who tested positive are well and we wish them a speedy recovery. We are asking all staff to do a Covid test before their return to ensure we do not bring Covid into the building post Christmas. We will continue to follow our stringent safety measures and cant wait to see you in the new year.
Thank you for being so responsive. I know that at short notice you have had to come and collect children or change plans. I’m sorry this has been the case. So many of you are doing an amazing job overseeing home learning and turning your homes into classrooms.
We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back to school on Tuesday 5th January 2021.
Sending love and blessings to one and all,
Wishing you a good tidings and a happy new year,
