Thank you to so many of you for your understanding and lovely comments about the support we are providing. I would just like to clarify what we are able to provide in a little more detail and the plan for the rest of the lockdown.
For those children who are in school today, parents will be contacted at some point to confirm their eligibility as either a critical worker or vulnerable family and then clarify the provision they need for their child/children.
If you have not sent your child today, but feel you meet the criteria and need your child to come to school, please can you ring either school office, between 2p.m. - 4p.m. today to book your child in for the rest of this week and next. If you are not sure if you meet criteria please ring to check.
We will be continuing to work normal school hours: 8.30a.m. breakfast club: 8.40a.m. doors open for arrival, with doors closing at 9.10a.m. as they do currently. Collection time will be 3-3.15p.m. at both schools as from Wednesday 6th January.
If your child is staying at home, they can access the remote learning in these ways: Nursery and Year R through their tapestry accounts; Years 1 & 2 through Purple Mash; Years 3-6 through Seesaw.
As well as these platforms the children at the junior school can access Mathletics, Spelling Shed, Maths Shed and in Year 6 they have Read Theory as well.
I will continue to send updates, as I did during the previous lockdown, on a Monday and a Thursday. Please do keep checking the school website for other information and guidance too.
Please remember that you are not on your own. There are people in school to support you, so even if your children are not in school, and you feel you need some advice or support, don't hesitate to contact us.
I wish you all the best and stay safe.
Mrs Sheila Pape
