Please be reminded that school will be closed to almost all children from today, Monday 23rd March 2020, until further notice.
While I regret that this is the situation, I have to follow the latest government advice.
Therefore, we do not expect to see your children from today unless:
If your child falls into one of the categories above and you haven’t already told the school, please let us know immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Places are only for those children who absolutely need to attend: every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. If we are not expecting to see your child, we will send them home.
Pupils who receive free school meals
If your child receives free school meals but isn’t eligible to attend school from today, we can help make alternative provision for you. Contact the School Office via email (email@example.com) to request options, which include being provided with a supermarket voucher.
I know this is a difficult time for many of you, and the next few months will be an adjustment for all of us. We are doing everything we can to support your children and families at this time and appreciate your patience and support. Please do help us by following the advice set out above.
I will be back in touch with more information as it becomes available.
Remember: if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111 online.
