The Latest Update: 19th March 2020
Further to the announcement made yesterday regarding the closing of schools this Friday, 20th March, we wanted to send you an update of what we know so far.
The school will be closing at 3.15pm on Friday.
However, in line with guidelines we are planning to open for the following pupils.
- Those pupils that have Education, Health and Care Plan
- Children who currently are assigned to a social worker
- Children who parents are key workers - at this stage we expect this to be those parents that work in the Police, NHS, teaching and supermarkets but we do not have a definitive list at this stage. As and when we have information, we will send out a form on ParentMail to request further details.
Please be aware that we will not be able to accept children from these groups if any of the family members or the child themselves are poorly or self-isolating.
The announcement also included information regarding meal vouchers to those pupils who are currently in receipt of Pupil Premium funding – again we do not have further detail about how this will work but as soon as we do we will be in contact with the families who qualify for this support.
Can we just remind you that we are working on home learning packs that will be sent out electronically once the school has closed. We are asking parents not to come to the school to try to collect work. We will not be sending out anything this week and we will not be asking teachers to contact you to discuss school work at home. We are receiving calls and emails about this repeatedly and we would request that you do not call or email regarding this so that we can focus on making plans for the next few days.
