Comber Grove School Closure



Monday 16th March 2020



Dear Parents and Carers,



Comber Grove School Closure


As directed by the Government, Comber Grove Primary School will be closed from 3:15pm today until further notice. 


Your child’s teacher is using ‘Class Dojo’ as a remote learning platform to set learning and continue their education.  Please go the ‘Key Information’ section of the website and look at our ‘Remote Learning’ page for more information.  For clarity, the school will be closed and the education will be provided online only until the school re-opens.  Paper packs have been sent home for those families without internet access.



Our Remote Learning Page is here:


If you have a social worker and there is no one suitable to look after your child  / children, school will offer you childcare provision at school between 08:55am and 3:15pm.


If you are a key worker and there is no one suitable to look after your children, school will offer you childcare provision to care for your child.  This provision will be reviewed on a week by week basis due to staffing and numbers.


This is an offer of childcare provision as many of you working in these critical sectors may be able to ensure your child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. This is an offer to parents and carers and there is no requirement for parents and carers to send their children to school if they do not need or wish to do so. 


As per the Government guidance, key workers are:


  • Education and childcare
  • Key public services
  • Local and national government
  • Food and other necessary goods
  • Public safety and national security
  • Transport
  • Utilities, communication and financial services


If you wish to take up the offer and you meet the critera, please let us know as soon as possible.  To repeat, children should be kept at home where possible and school would only be open for children who absolutely need to attend. 


We are contacting parents as quickly as we can by telephone.


For all other parents, please keep safe and well.  If you need to speak to me or any other staff, we are working remotely and can be contacted through ‘Class Dojo’.


Alternatively, please use our email address on and we will respond as quick as we can.


The school may be closed but we are on the end of the phone and email and will support as much as we can at this time.  We will keep in touch.


Take care, keep safe and well.
