School Closure

Dear Parents/Carers,

Abbey Green Nursery School Closure

I am writing to update you on a number of developments.

The Local Authority have now advised that schools should make individual arrangements for children of key workers, children with special educational needs and children in vulnerable groups.

We have considered all options carefully and feel the best arrangements are to close Abbey Green due to the low numbers of children eligible for nursery provision and have decided to offer this provision at Midland Road Nursery School. Our staff team will be moving across to work with the Midland Road team.  This will also help to support consistent staffing levels as the numbers of staff self-isolating and social distancing increase.  I know the Midland Road team will want to ensure that the Abbey Green children will be welcomed and settled into the new setting.

Many of you will know that I am also Acting Headteacher at Midland Road Nursery School and so I know the school very well.  It has the same wonderful, warm, welcome and quality provision we have at Abbey Green.

We look forward to welcoming children to Midland Road.  You will see lots of familiar faces and I am sure your children will settle in quickly.  We will keep in touch with all our other families throughout this difficult time.

Yours sincerely,

Ginny Robinson

Acting Headteacher
