Good evening all,
As you may well be aware, the Government have asked for all schools to move to online learning with immediate effect. This means that the school will, for the foreseeable future, only be open for key worker and vulnerable children.
Tomorrow we will be sending out a questionnaire asking if your children fall into either of these categories. It is essential that we receive a response from every family, as quickly as possible, so we can put plans in place to accommodate these children in school.
In the meantime, we ask that you only send your child/children to school tomorrow if you are a key worker and you have no other option for childcare. Please do consider carefully if there is someone at home who can look after them tomorrow. We would also ask for parents/carers of vulnerable children to also keep the children at home tomorrow, if at all possible. This will enable us to organise staffing and key worker / vulnerable bubbles quickly and ensure we can support children both learning at home and in school safely on Wednesday.
As usual, work will be provided for all children on Teams or Tapestry (for EYFS) from tomorrow and staff will be available to support and answer queries online.
We will be open for key worker and vulnerable children from Wednesday and will send an online questionnaire out tomorrow to ascertain who requires places in school and on which days.
If at all possible, please keep your keyworker and vulnerable children at home tomorrow. If however, you have no option but to bring them to school please arrive at your normal gate at the normal time. If your key worker child normally has PE on a Tuesday please send them in PE kit.
There will be breakfast club available tomorrow for key worker children only.
All children at home will be able to access home learning via Teams and staff will be on hand to support with technical issues and queries about the lessons.
All parents must fill out the online questionnaire as soon as possible tomorrow.
Many thanks for your patience and support with this.
