19 March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Re. COVID-19 Update

In line with Government guidance, from Monday we are only open to children of key workers and vulnerable children. We have defined key workers as:

  • National health service
  • School Staff
  • Armed forces
  • Care home workers
  • Social workers
  • Police officers
  • Prison officers
  • Fire fighters
  • Environmental health officers
  • Highways Agency workers
  • Supermarket workers
  • Delivery drivers

Where there are two parents in a household, if one of them is a key worker and one of them is not we would expect that the non key worker would provide the necessary childcare. Therefore, that child will not be in school.

We are contacting parents of ‘vulnerable’ children directly to establish whether they would be best supported at school or at home.

If you are a key worker and there is no facility for childcare at home, and if you have not already informed school leaders, please phone the office as a matter of urgency today, Thursday 19th March, in order that the school can plan the provision.

For children who are at home, we have sent work packs home which are also available for collection at the school office. Further, please click here to see suggested home learning activities. We have started with Year 4 and 5 given that those year groups have not been in school for the last few days.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. J. Wiltshire
