MARCH 2021  - RE-OPENING OF SCHOOLS 8th March 2021

Following on from the Governments announcement last night regarding the opening of all schools on the 8th March. We are currently putting plans in place to ensure a safe re-opening for all our children and staff and we will be in contact with you shortly with further information regarding this.
Thank you for your continued support.



Whilst national guidance sets out clear guidelines of who may be eligible for a place in school during the current lockdown, each school needs to conduct a rigorous risk assessment to ensure safe working in school during the pandemic. Therefore it is not possible to offer places to all children who may fall under the current guidelines.
Whilst we appreciate this is extremely frustrating for families, we must limit our numbers to ensure the transition rate of the virus within our area begins to fall, or we will remain in this full lockdown for much longer.

We are currently offering places to:

- Single Parents who are key workers or,
- Both Parents who are key workers

If you feel you fall in to one of the categories above, please contact school, evidence of key worker status, will be required. This could be in the form of your employment ID badge or alternatively, please email school (admin@st-malachys.calderdale.sch.uk) with your employer name, address and contact number/email, so that we can confirm this.

Thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times.

Dear Parent/Carers

Our mission is to provide an enriching, high quality education, where we learn, love and grow with Christ at the centre, so that each individual feels nurtured and can achieve their full potential. We strive to be an oasis of educational excellence where our children feel well-supported, happy and safe, therefore enjoying school. They benefit greatly from the creative, skills-based curriculum they receive, and love the exciting school trips and interesting visitors who enhance their learning.

If you would like your child to start in Nursery or Reception (2020/21), we would be delighted to show you around our warm, friendly school.
