Update on Year 5/6 bubble closure.
The result of the PCR test has come back as positive.
The school will be contacting you shortly by text to inform you as to when your child can return to school after their self-isolation period has ended.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
Update from Spilsby Primary (5 July 2021, 6pm):
The school has not received the result of the PCR test and, as such, the children will still have to self-isolate until it is received.
As per government guidance, the online learning provision will now take the place of the learning in school and is available for your child to start from tomorrow. This may be in the form of online videos or TEAMS meetings or a combination of the two, which your child’s class teacher will have contacted you with information about.
Year 6 online learning arrangements have been emailed to you individually by Mrs Daniels.
Year 5 online learning can be accessed on the school website https://www.spilsbyprimary.org.uk/year-5-11/
The few children already isolating in Reception and Year 2 (who were contacted by the school on Sunday) will receive an email from their class teachers tomorrow morning.
Please rest assured that as soon as we know the result of the PCR test, we will let you know. There is nothing we would like more than to have the children in school learning so please bear with us.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
