Sports Day Cancellation

Dear Parents,


It is with great regret that we have made the decision to move our sports day events to the school playground. This means that parents won’t be able to attend and we know this will be very disappointing for a lot of you. We will create some videos to share with you of the children enjoying their activities. All children should wear their sports kit tomorrow.


We have made this decision based on a few factors:

· Not all of our year groups are in school this week due to a small number of children testing positive for COVID-19 and other children needing to self-isolate. This is not a situation unique to Prince Rock but is being experienced across the city and nationally.


· Because of the self-isolation situation, we have staff who are not in school and this was making it increasingly difficult to have the ratios needed for an event off-site.


· A group of travellers have moved onto the field next to the one we use. We have been in contact with Plymouth City Council about this and they have told us that more people are arriving today. We are, therefore, unsure what the situation will be with this tomorrow and our risk assessment suggests we should not use the public field.


Once again, we are sorry that you will not be able to attend. We are looking forward to next year when, hopefully, we will be able to enjoy a more normal year and welcome parents back to school events.


Please phone the school if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Ms C. Brake
