This term the school will be closed for two days because it will be used as a polling station.
This week in school, we have completed a three day week. Although, the May Day Bank Holiday is a lovely time honoured tradition, I have to express my frustration at having to close again on Thursday for the local elections. As you will be aware, we will also be closed on 8th June for the general election. I am a little embarrased about, on the one hand, not authorising holidays in term time and contacting families in order to try and improve attendance rates, only to announce that we will inconvenience families by closing on election days. Perhaps we shold hold elections on a Sunday as they do in France. I do not profess to know all the details about the electoral process operates or what costs are involved but I will continue to explore this issue.
