Further to this evening’s announcement by the Prime Minister, we have no choice but to escalate the measures in school as part of our partial closure.

From tomorrow morning (24/03/2020) only the following children will be able to access the child care service currently provided by school:

– Pupils with 2 parents/carers who are critical key workers who live at the same address as the child
– Pupils with a single parent who is a critical key worker who lives at the same address as the child

Critical key workers are those working for the NHS, emergency services, education and food/medicinal distribution.

These increased measures have been introduced to ensure social distancing and must be followed. We are only to leave our homes if absolutely necessary, following the guidance introduced by the government this evening.

This is a very challenging time for everyone within the school network and we would like to thank those parents/carers who have already made the decision that it was not essential for their child to be sent into school, ensuring that the provision we are offering is being accessed by those who absolutely need it.
