Recent Communications

Good Evening,
We have been made aware that our communications system provider, Parent Mail, are experiencing technical difficulties due to the high volume of communications it is trying to send. The letter from Mrs. Law was set to send at 3.30pm today and we have been unable to confirm with Parent Mail that they have sent it. Therefore please see the below letter and note that the cutoff time for replies has now been extended to 08:00am tomorrow morning (Friday 20th March 2020) We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We would kindly ask to share this content with any parents you may be friends with in order for us to reach as many of you as possible.
 

As you will be aware, the government announced yesterday that all schools in the UK are closing for the vast majority of children with effect from the end of the day tomorrow (Friday 20th March)  until further notice.

We need to know urgently which children are going to attend school under the key worker or vulnerable child categories.  Children who do not fall into these categories should remain at home with appropriate care. We strongly advise that for the wellbeing and health and safety of all children you keep your child at home unless absolutely necessary.

If your child receives Free School Meals and will not be attending we are hoping to provide some form of lunches for the children. We have sent out a separate form to collect this information from you and you will receive further details around this if you have made yourself known. If your child attends school and would like a school meal we will endeavour to provide this on a day to day basis.

If you need your child to attend school from Monday please fill in the attached form shown in the link below by 8pm this evening. If you require a paper copy please pop into the office tomorrow. If we do not hear from you will assume that you do not require child care and will not factor you into our ratios.

THIS DOCUMENT IS SUBJECT TO REVIEW WHEN MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FROM THE GOVERNMENT – SUCH AS KEY WORKER DEFINITIONS AND THE AVAILABILITY OF STAFFING ON A DAILY BASIS
