Message from Boris Johnson 9.00pm on Monday 23rd March - Please only send your children to school if essential.
Information as of 3.00pm on Saturday 21st March
Key Worker Update
In keeping with Government guidelines “The Government has asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible and have asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. It is important to underline that schools remain safe places for children. The fewer children making the journey to school, the lower the risk that the virus can spread” (gov.uk).
Thank you to all families for your support, patience and understanding as we continue to make arrangements in this ever changing time. We send all families our best wishes.
To follow government health guidelines outlined above and to inform school which days are needed ( school cannot accommodate part days and needs to plan sufficient staffing) key workers need to provide school with a list of their workdays for the week and next week where possible. Please give these to Mr Baker or Miss Hodson on the gate Monday. Children SHOULD be at home whenever possible.
On Monday please bring your child to the main gate and inform Mr Baker or Miss Hodson of their attendance.
Children need to follow routine as much as possible so please send them in as normal: wearing school uniform with a water bottle and their lunchbox (if they usually have sandwiches) school lunches are available. Breakfast club is open as usual next week.
At the end of the school day (3.10pm) please collect your child from the key stage 2 playground (the gate will be opened at 3pm)
Non key worker families
School will update the website regularly with fun and interesting activities for your children while they can't attend school.
Thank you all. We will continue to update you regularly.
Information as of 7.00am on Friday 20th March
Link to latest Government guidance.
The guidance states "every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. If at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be; however, if needed children with at least one parent or carer who are identified as critical workers can send their child/children to school if required".
The full list of key or critical workers can be found by clicking the link above. If you feel you need to send your children to school, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can ensure full safety of all children in our care. Please send a copy of your job title and work ID from your work email where possible.
