School Closure  

From Monday 23rd March, our school will be closed to all but the children of keyworkers and vulnerable children. If you have not let us know that you are a keyworker, please do so by emailing sarah@ottery-primary.devon.sch.uk . You must check with your employer first if you feel you fit this category. If it is at all possible for children to stay at home then the advice is clear that this is where they should be. 

Those who are entitled to childcare provision during the school closure must register their children by 9pm each night so we can plan our provision. This must be done through the form shared to those parents and carers. The form must be filled in for each child who will be attending. 

For parents and carers who are now supporting their children with home learning, we have shared information about how to access our remote learning classrooms. We will be sharing further resources in the coming weeks, and many helpful websites can be found in the parent hub section of our website. 

We are very grateful for your support, patience and understanding during these tricky times.
