School Closure - 17/12/2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to inform you of a change to the initial calendar dates sent out at the start of this term. The Prince Albert Community Trust have decided that all five schools will close on Thursday 17th December. This will allow for appropriate cleaning of all sites, before the buildings close down for the Christmas period. 

We thank you for your ongoing support at this challenging time and wish all of our families who are celebrating, a very Merry Christmas.

Year 1 - Nativity 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,                                                                                                                                                   

27th November 2020 

As we move towards the festive period, staff and children in Year One are planning their Nativity performance. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, sadly, we will not be able to have the usual set up where parents would normally be invited to attend.

As a result, we are planning on putting together a nativity video for Year One parents only. Children and staff will be working hard over the coming weeks to plan, practise and record their performance to share with their parents and guardians. 

The video will be uploaded online and shared with you via a private link. Only people who have the link will be able to watch the video, as the video will not be available for the public to view online. We plan on sharing the special link to the video with you via text message/email. 

In order for your child to take part in the Christmas celebration video we require your consent. Please be aware, that although Prince Albert Primary School will do all it can to ensure that the video will not be shared with unauthorised parties it cannot take responsibility for the video once it has been sent out to parents/carers.

We would be very grateful if you could please complete the consent form below by no later than DATE: Friday 04th December Please note, we will only allow children who have consent to take part in the Christmas nativity video so it is very important that the consent form is completed and returned to school by the above date.
