IMPORTANT - School Closure Details
It is with great regret that I need to close Eskdale Academy for an initial two weeks until the 18th January.
I cannot apologise enough for the short notice for this; however the stance of the Teaching unions as well as the advice from SAGE and huge increase in society transmission over the last 3-4 days has made this the only decision available to me. I have to make the right call to keep all children, their families and staff safe.
We will still be open for children of key workers and vulnerable children from Tuesday 5th January - details of this provision will follow ASAP; if you weren’t eligible for this provision last time but feel you need childcare during this two week period please contact me directly.
I hope you and your families all stay safe during this period; the end is in sight - I just hope this is the last hurdle we all need to get over before we can finally get back to some normality.
Thanks in advance for your understanding; any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
