INFORMATION  – 02/10/2020

Dear Parent and Carers,

You will probably be aware that many school settings have been advised to close to particular ‘bubbles’ or year groups as they have been told to isolate. For the last few weeks we have managed here at Stanhope Primary, to run to capacity, however there may be a time in the very near future when we may have to close to a year group or year groups.

Unfortunately, a closure of this type will be at very short notice. You will be notified of a closure via our website, Facebook page, as well as our text messaging service.

We will all do our best to remain open however the safety of our children and staff is paramount.

Thank you for all your support since we returned in September.


Mrs L A Martin




Dear Parents,

As you are aware, South Tyneside is currently under enhanced restrictions due to the Covid19 Crisis.

It is my duty to inform you that parents should not be dropping off or collecting children from other households even if the children are in the same ‘bubble’ at school. These restrictions are in place so the transmission rate reduces.

Please see the link below for full guidance published by South Tyneside Local Authority.

This guidance states that residents must not socialise with other people outside of their own household or support bubble in private homes and gardens. A support bubble is a close support network between a household with only one adult in the home (known as a single-adult household) and one other household of any size.

Please support us with this guidance, this will help towards reducing the transmission rate and returning to some normality.

Thank you

Mrs L A Martin
