Dear parents and carers,

On behalf of the Bank End and Hunningley Primary School Governors, I would like to inform you that both schools will close two days earlier than initially planned at the end of the summer term. The schools will close on Friday 21st July. The decision to close has not been taken lightly and made for the following reasons:

  1. Both Horizon and Barnsley Academy will be closed and therefore all Y6 children are expected to return to their primaries. Last year this was the case and only two children returned meaning that 70 children had unauthorised absences for two days.
  2. To support building and maintenance work being done in both schools.
  3. To give staff additional training

In order to give you advance notice of school closure dates for 2017/2018 on the reverse of this letter there are the dates for the Barnsley School Holidays. Additional school closure days for staff training will be:

Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th September 2017
Friday 22nd December 2017
Monday 4th June 2018
Monday 23rd July 2018

Please put these in your diary or on your calendar.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Nic Thorpe
Executive Headteacher-The Bank End and Hunningley Partnership
