Coronavirus Updates

We are working together as a cluster of schools and are following advice given by the Department for Education and Public Health Education. Copies of letters sent home will be updated here.

Information from the DfE.

Letter to parents regarding school closure update.

School Support for Critical Key Workers from Monday 23rd March

Please see the attached important letter for all parents who believe that they may be eligible for emergency childcare places from Monday 23rd March while the school remains closed to all other children. Note this is for children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. Where possible please print and complete all sections for Monday morning.

We urge all parents to follow the guidance below to help to minimise the risk to the children being cared for, our staff and the community.

Useful Numbers for Support

We recognise that the lockdown is a challenge that we haven’t faced before. Attached is a list of useful contact numbers that may be of help to you, your families and the community around you.

We are awaiting guidance and support from the Local Authority and the Department of Education of what measures we will need to put in place for a return to school. Please be assured that our team are already considering changes that will need to take place so that we can maintain social distancing between children and adults in school.

Please the attached letter for the preparations that we are making for the phased return to school.
