Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make sure St. Gabriel’s is a place where children can be safe and stay safe.
We will review all our safety measures regularly and keep you up to date with any changes.
We look forward to a time when we can return to a more relaxed approach, but in the meantime we will continue to give your child all the love, care, support and challenge that they need.
UPDATE from Rochdale Council
You must wear a face covering when dropping your child off at school / picking them up from school ⚠️
This is part of the measures in place to protect everyone.
Please don't make other parents/carers feel uncomfortable at the school gates by not wearing a face covering.
Rochdale Education Psychology service have asked us to share this information with parents. It’s about supporting children through a bereavement. Obviously there has been a high number of COVID deaths. This may be useful to help support some of our children who have lost loved ones through COVID or other causes.
