Following the announcement by the government a few minutes ago we will not be able to go ahead with all of our plans. The school will be open for the children of critical key workers and vulnerable children only. Please send your child to school tomorrow if you fall into those categories. Your child should go to their normal classroom and attend for the full day.
If you have not already done so please email your working days and your role as a key worker to email@example.com.
The government has also also stated that the Nursery can remain open. You should continue to send your child if you so wish.
If your child is not eligible to attend as the child of a critical worker they should remain at home. I will send further details about the home learning offer tomorrow by lunchtime at the latest. Meanwhile work will be available on the work portal.
Below is a list of critical workers from the government website. I apologise for the confusion but it is a fast moving situation and we have to follow the instructions issued by the government.
After School Care will run as normal but I will not be able to offer Breakfast Club at this time.
