Locking Primary School is now closed. We remain open between 8am-6pm, Monday-Friday, for children who are identified as vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response, as defined in government documentation.
Following a rise in COVID-19 cases in Weston-super-Mare and the precautionary closure of local A&E provision, Trustees have decided to delay the wider reopening of ELAN schools to children in Preschool, YR, Y1 and Y6 by one week.
This will be reviewed by trustees on 4th June. Confirmation of specific year group opening dates, times and procedures will be conveyed to parents and carers following this review

Important School Update 13/5/2020
We are sure that by now you will have seen the government's announcement regarding schools reopening, possibly as soon as 1st June 2020.
The announcement presented us with many questions. Currently we are working with a range of experts and seeking further advice from the DFE to ensure that reopening is done safely. Education is important but, as a school and member of a school’s trust, pupil and staff wellbeing has always been at the top of our agenda and this present challenge will not compromise our priorities. In short, we do the right thing.
What we know so far:
In preparation for wider opening we will be consulting with parents and carers. To enable this, we will issue a survey to capture your views and provide us with specific information required prior to opening
We don't know yet:
We are waiting for further clarification and guidance from the Department for Education. Once received, detailed information will be communicated to you.
Our Estates Lead is consulting with site teams, other schools and external experts to ensure all necessary steps are taken to provide a safe site for all.
If you have any questions/concerns you would like to share please email email@example.com
We would like to thank you for your continued support in helping your child learn from home. We will need to keep going with this for a while, so please continue to do what you can and stay in touch with us.
Many thanks for your patience and support.
