Coronavirus - School Closure Update for Parents
Following the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday 23rd March, where strict new measures were outlined to tackle the spread of coronavirus, school is currently fully closed to all children and staff. This is due to a combination of staff shortage through isolation, and parents of vulnerable children and those who are key workers not requiring our service at this difficult time. We are however reviewing this situation on a daily basis.
If you are a parent in a position as a defined critical worker or qualify for Free School Meals, and feel the need of support from school at this time, we would like you to call to speak with us to discuss how we can support you. The emergency number to contact us on is: 07813 532699
We take this opportunity to remind parents of the most up to date guidance.
The new guidance says people should only leave their homes for:
- Shopping for basic necessities such as food and medicine. Shopping trips should be as infrequent as possible
- One form of exercise a day such as a run, walk or cycle. This should be done alone or only with people you live with
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. This includes moving children under the age of 18 between their parents' homes, where applicable. Key workers or those with children identified as vulnerable can continue to take their children to school
- Travelling to and from work, but only where work absolutely cannot be done from home
Even when following the above guidance, people should minimise the amount of time spent out of their homes and should keep two metres (6ft) away from people they do not live with.
