Christmas Update – 3.12.21
Dear all,

Just to provide a further update regarding Christmas performances/nativities at Mortimer.

Our decision still stands to keep our performances in-house without parents. This was not taken lightly and we fully understand that this is upsetting. We believe this is the right course of action for our school, for the safety of all due to the restrictions our building imposes. We cannot comment or compare what we are doing with that of other schools.

The walk-around will go ahead as we can greatly increase the ventilation of the building and apply social distancing. Parents/carers are free to choose if they come to the walk around, but all decorations/crafts will come home with your child at the end of term.

The hall represents a much greater challenge, where, considering the number of pupils in school, is very small and we would be unable to create the same level of ventilation or create sufficient space to distance.

Please note, the performances are not cancelled. They will be recorded and freely shared with all parents.

If you do not wish for your child to be on video then please let us know, else we will use your permissions that we have on file and include your child.

On a more positive note, we hope to offer a special festive finish on Friday 17th December which we are sure all parents will enjoy. We hope to share details of this early next week.

The follow events will take place:
