This week we have had an increased number of calls from families requesting places for key worker children. As always we are doing our best to support our families but we are running very close to full capacity whilst maintaining all health and safety Covid-19 guidelines. . It is important that we keep the numbers attending school as low as possible so that we can maintain the safety of the staff and children in school at the moment.
I have attached below a link to a letter to parents from the local authority and public health . In the letter Steve Reddy and Matt Ashton remind families that children and young people, should stay at home unless absolutely necessary. Children should only be sent into school if there is no way they can safely stay at home and learn remotely.
If there is an adult working at home or able to take leave from their non-critical job, they are asking parents to please think twice before sending your child to school.
This will allow those who really need to be in school to have access to a place. We don’t want to be in a position where we are unable to support safely the number of children wanting to
The safety of our school community is foremost in our minds and would ask that families consider all options for childcare before approaching school for places during lockdown.
The staff and I understand how hard it is for families working at home and we are doing all we can to offer support with home learning. We still have a number of IT devices available to support home learning and if you feel that this would support you and your child please contact school. We also have free WIFI Sim cards available if you need help with internet access.
