Re: Coronavirus update – school closure to most pupils
Following on from my last update, I’m writing to let you know that we have now been instructed to close the school to almost all children after this Friday until further notice.
As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers and children with certain needs.
So far the list of Key Workers includes:
- NHS staff
- Emergency Service workers
- Social Workers
- Social Care Workers
- Delivery drivers within the food chain
This list may possibly be extended following further Government updates.
It would help us in the meantime if you could let us know if you think your child may fall into one of these categories.
It is likely that BOTH parents will need to be key workers. We’ll be in touch again as soon as we are sure who this does apply to.
All other children will need to stay at home, so we ask that you do not send your child into school from Monday onward.
Please note that this is a national closure – as you may have heard in the news – so while it is a challenging situation, we are not alone. We’ll re-open fully as soon as we can and will let you know when this is through the school website and Parentmail.
This is as much as we know right now and we appreciate your continued patience with as we deal with this ever-changing situation. We understand that this latest news will have an impact on you and your family and it’s far from ideal, but we’ll continue to keep in touch with any updates as the situation develops.
If you want to get in touch to share any concerns, please don’t hesitate to do so.
