Corona Virus updates and correspondence

E-mail sent out Thursday 19th March 13:05

Dear Parents,

We are prepared to keep school open and provide provision for the children of key workers (those who are required to work to keep the country functioning) and those whose children have an EHCP. Government recommendations are that the majority of children will and should isolate.

We have a plan to open school from 8.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday through the next four weeks, including what would have been the Easter holiday period, excluding Good Friday and Easter Monday, if there is a need from key working parents.

Children, who come to school, will be expected to complete work set on the website during the mornings with some support from a member of staff. We plan to have two members of staff on site, one of which will be first aid trained. Following this, children spend as much time as possible outside exploring, reading, artwork and playing games which require as little close contact as possible. Pupils in school will require a packed lunch, snack and drink. School uniform will not be required. Work will not be set during what would have been the Easter holidays.

Should staffing challenges increase due to sickness or the need to self-isolate we will have to adapt this provision. Before the 20th April we will evaluate the situation and communicate updates to this provision.

If you require this provision please respond to this e-mail outlining whether it is sufficient, what your requirements are and why it is required by 12pm tomorrow (Friday 20th March). If we do not hear from you, we will assume that childcare provision is not required for your child/children.

Yours sincerely,

Joel Turvey

Headteacher
