Firstly, can I thank you all for your ongoing support. I am sure you can appreciate the challenges the escalating situation around Coronavirus is presenting to us as a school.

We remain closed until further notice and continue to adhere to the Government Guidelines. We continue to keep in touch with our Key worker families and childcare is being provided where needed. 

Please note the following principals the Local Authority have advised us that should apply to all Keyworkers/critical staff:-

Keyworkers must only send children to school when they are actually on rota working for the employer, not at other times.

Keyworkers should not send children to school if their partner, or similar, is able to look after them. There is an expectation that if key workers are working from home the default should be to keep children there, rather than send them to school.

Furthermore, the Government is saying if it is at all possible, please keep your children at home.

I will of course keep you updated and give you as much notice as I can if things change. This will be through the T2P App and the website.

We have set up a page on our website ‘In the event of School Closure’ where work and advice is being posted weekly.  There is also a list of handy websites to look at. My advice would be to keep track of children’s learning, but turn a negative situation into a positive one and explore nature in your own environment. Do some gardening, bake some cakes, enjoy mindfulness colouring, read lots of books or play board games together!

If you have any specific questions, concerns or need any advice please contact the school office via email, but please limit your contact to absolutely essential.

Best wishes to you all in these difficult times.
