Thank you for your continued support during this challenging time. As you are well aware school is closed to all children after Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice. During this period of school closure will keep in contact with parents and carers via the school website, our eSchools app. Information and updates will also be shared via our Facebook page.
As advised by the Government, schools will do all we can to stay open for the students of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services), children with EHCP, a social worker and the most vulnerable. Please remember Government guidance is that ‘every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, in order to limit the chance of the virus spreading’.
Pupils that need to come to school should arrive no earlier than 8:45 am. Children need to bring a packed lunch and a drink, however they do not need to wear school uniform. We have limited staff numbers and we have been advised to keep the size of groups to a minimum. Please ensure if your child is in school that you collect them by 3.20 pm as there will not be staff to look after them after this time. All other children will need to stay at home.
If your family is currently self-isolating and you have registered as key worker requiring a school place during the school closure, please ensure you complete the 14 days isolation period before sending your child to school.
Please note that this is a National closure, so while it is a challenging situation, we are not alone. We will re-open fully as soon as we can and will let you know when this happens as soon as we are notified through our website. Please make sure you check our school website regularly.
If you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111 online, rather than ring school for advice.
