Don't forget: COVID-19 is still posing a threat to us all, particularly with the Omicron variant. As only 52% of the population of Radford has had their first vaccination, 44% has had their second vaccination and only 19% has had a booster, we are still being extra careful to prevent infection. If your child has any of the symptoms, please don't bring them to school. Most staff members are double-vaccinated, which reduces the risk to everyone. Our 50th celebrations have started: watch this space for a year's worth of exciting events! And finally, Mellers has been named Primary School of the Year 2021 by Swim England for our commitment to and success in swimming!
