Update – 25th January 2021
The school will reopen on Tuesday 26th January to all Key workers and identified children. This applies to all the children who have been attending school over the last couple of weeks.
All children will enter the site through the new drop off points. We ask Year 5 & 6 to also enter through Bruin Street tomorrow.
Nursery & Reception – Ross Walk
Year 1 & 2 – Ellis Avenue
Year 3 & 4 – Bruin Street
Year 5 & 6 – Bruin Street
Children need to come to school appropriately dressed for the weather. Please stick to the cleared paths for your own safety. If children have wellies, we ask that they wear these to school for when walking through the snow at play and lunchtimes.
We ask that parents leave plenty of time to travel safely to and from school; avoiding cars wherever possible.
Update – 24th January 2021
Sadly due to the snow & freezing temperatures myself & the Chair of Governors have decided that we are closing the school today to all but the children of emergency workers who will be supervised by local staff that are able to walk in. Your child’s safety and the safety of our staff is paramount to us and we are concerned about individuals having to drive in tomorrow.
Online provision will continue to be provided tomorrow and children are expected to access remote learning as usual. For those children that would have been in school, we ask them to access online lessons if possible. If this is not possible, we ask that they focus on improving their reading and handwriting skills.
At this stage, we intend to reopen the school to the wider key workers and identified children from Tuesday. We will of course update you tomorrow though once we know more about the developing weather.
There will not be office staff onsite tomorrow so we ask that all queries are sent via our office email: [email protected]

Update – 4th January 2021
You will have heard tonight that the country is entering a National Lockdown which includes the closing of primary schools from midnight. Whilst Abbey Mead will need to move most pupils to online learning, we remain committed to offering in school places to the children of Key Workers and those identified as having particular needs. You will have received a phone call today from your teachers to discuss this so they will be ready and expecting to see the children of key workers and identified pupils tomorrow (05/01/21).
The short notice from the government will likely have raised many questions for you and your families. Staff will be contacting parents again tomorrow (05/01/21) to discuss home learning, the collection of packs and be able to answer any questions that you might have.
Once again, we are here to support you as a community and we will get through this difficult time together.
