Happy New Year 2021

Education Restart/Stay Home Stay Safe

Monday 11th January 2021 until Friday 19th February 2021.

In light of the current crisis in public health, the Education Minister has once again revised his plans for the re-opening of schools in Northern Ireland.

To fully align the re-opening of Edwards Primary School, Nursery Unit and Kidzplay with this guidance from Monday 11th January until Friday 19th February 2021:

  • Kidzplay at Edwards will remain open.
  • No Breakfast club available.
  • Edwards Nursery Unit and Edwards Primary School will move to remote learning. Learning packs for all pupils (Nursery included) can be collected each Monday from 9.00 – 11.00 am from class teachers using the playground classroom entrances.  If this collection time does not suit, please email the class teacher to arrange an alternative time.  Please return work and books from the previous week for marking.  Power points and web links to support the teaching and learning activities in the packs will be posted on your child’s class parent private page of the school website.
  • The school will accommodate vulnerable children and the children of key workers from 9.00 am until 3.00 pm each day except for the half-term holidays on Thursday 18th February and Friday 19th February 2021 for supervised learning. Parents who wish to avail of this service should email the school info account by Thursday at noon of the previous week info@edwards.castlederg.ni.sch.uk and detail which days they require the service for the week ahead. 

Pupils should bring a healthy snack and a packed lunch as no school dinners will be available.

Pupils will be placed in Key Stage bubbles and may wear their uniform or their own clothes.  Learning packs may be brought into school for supervised learning.

  • Class teachers will contact each family once per week either by email or telephone.
  • Special Needs assistants will contact their assigned pupil by telephone each Tuesday of every week.

The next couple of months will be extremely difficult for everyone in our school community but as Captain Tom said, “We are in a difficult situation but we will get through it if we all join together”.

This lock down is about limiting attendance and reducing the number of contacts that all of us have with people in other households in order to eliminate the spread of COVID-19.

Stay safe

Stay well

Stay at home and look after each other.
