Closure from 23rd March 2020
In line with government direction, we intend for our school to be open from Monday to:
- children of key workers (defined broadly but e.g. health workers, the police service and fire service, those who are involved in food supply and other basic services – please talk to us if you are not sure; we are expecting the government to give greater clarification on this later today), if parents/carers wish the child to attend school
- vulnerable children (defined broadly but e.g. pupils who have an education, health and care plan or who have an allocated social worker – please talk to us if you are not sure), if parents/carers wish the child to attend school
So that we can plan, I would be very grateful if you would let us know by 3pm TODAY if you believe your child/ren may be eligible to attend and you wish your child/ren to do so. We will also be making phone calls and talking to parents/carers – so apologies in advance if you get asked the same question more than once.
Once we have a sense of the number of pupils who will be attending on Monday and beyond, we will share more information on arrangements.
If children show symptoms of coronavirus (a new, continuous cough or a temperature of 37.8 degrees or higher, they will not be able to attend school and must stay at home for 14 days.
We have made preparations to ensure that learning can go on in the coming weeks – physical and digital materials will be shared with pupils in the coming days and arrangements will be made for materials to be collected/distributed to pupils who are already absent.
Thank you for your support in these challenging circumstances.
