Updates and Information


Friday 5th February 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Below are some important updates and information that you should be aware of.

School reopening

Currently, we have no additional information about when our children may fully return to school. We have been told that the government will conduct a review by mid-February and potentially set out a plan to bring the country out of lockdown (which should include schools). Schools have been told they will receive 2 weeks notice before any form of a return. We will of course share any updates with you when we have them.


If you have a school Chromebook, you may keep the device at home until your child returns to school.

Bubble places at Mead Primary School during the lockdown

We have now received over 150 requests for places which is stretching our staffing resources to the limit. Places should only be taken for children of critical workers and those defined as vulnerable to attend where it is absolutely necessary. If you have requested a place for your child in school, please urgently and seriously consider whether it is essential for them to attend school. The safest place for your child is at home. Please keep your children at home if at all possible.

Google Classroom

Please do get in touch with your year group if you need any help or support.
