Thank you so much for the support that we have received in these uncertain times. We really appreciate your patience and understanding.
As you are aware, school will CLOSE tomorrow (Friday 20th March) 3.00/3.15pm.
In preparation for the proposed “re-purposing” of schools, we need to begin to consider the possibility of partially opening to pupils whose parents are identified as “key workers”.
We need to establish how many of our parents are on the “key worker” list and have no other means of childcare and therefore will need to send their child to school.
If you feel this applies to you, please could you let Mrs Booth know before 1pm tomorrow, via email: email@example.com :
- Heath workers –all those employed within the NHS
- Education staff who work in schools and settings
- Blue light/emergency service officers
- Social care workers
- Supermarket delivery drivers
- Prison officers and other prison staff
- Probation Service
The school will also be open to vulnerable pupils whose parent will be contacted directly.
Once this information has been collated, we will contact those parents with further information.
Please remember the whole purpose of closing schools is to enable social distancing and to slow the spread of the virus. Therefore, if parents are on the list but are able to organise alternative childcare, this would be very much appreciated.
With regards to the “Home Learning Packs”, these will be ready tomorrow and will be sent home with the children. If your child is not in school, please collect the pack from the office, from 10.00am. If you are “self- isolating” please try and make arrangements for another person to collect it.
The “Home Learning Packs” have information letters inside and a number of different activities for your children to enjoy. Staff will also upload information to our website, so please make sure you have downloaded our app in preparation.
Thank you again for your support and understanding, stay safe.
Mrs Nicola Booth
