Dear Parent /Carer

Re: Arts Showcase
As you will be aware, cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 are now rising, both locally
and nationally. We are receiving regular updates from the DfE about the safety measures that
will help reduce the spread of the virus in school and we use this information to update our
risk assessments.

As a result of the rising cases, we have decided to move our Arts Showcase, that was
scheduled to go ahead this Wednesday evening, to an online event. Students will record their
performances on Wednesday during the school day and we will then share them with parents
and carers.

I know this will be disappointing to both you and your children; we are disappointed too and
did not want to make this decision. However, we feel that with the current spread of the virus
and the proximity to Christmas, it is safer for our students, staff and wider community to move
the event online.

We are all looking forward to a time, we hope not too far away, when we will be able to have
our hall full of dance, music and drama to share with you all once again.
