Please read the letter below for more information regarding who the school is open to and how this will be managed. 

Parents and carers who have already arranged via telephone for their child to attend school, or those who intend to send their child to school because they are Key Workers, please note that the school day will remain the same, however, children must be dropped off and collected from the main office. 

Parents and carers of pupils in receipt of free school meals will be contacted on Monday regarding how to collect a lunch for your child if they are not attending school. 

Please note: parents/ carers of pupils and families who are self- isolating will not be able to collect a lunch but may be able to appoint someone to collect one on their behalf if we have prior consent from the parent or carer. 

This is intended as a temporary measure until food vouchers are issued by the Government. 

Please can parents and carers refrain from using Class Dojo to ask questions that do not relate to home learning. Teachers and Teaching Assistants are available to support your child's education but do not have the answers to questions regarding; meal vouchers, refunds for trips/ clubs etc and information regarding these questions will be shared with parents and carers as soon as we are able to do so. 

Parents and carers are welcome to telephone the office or use the contact submission form on the school website to ask any questions that do not relate to their child's education, Key Worker parents are encouraged to submit contact submission forms over the weekend if they intend to send their children into school next week. The information we require would be your name, your job role and your partners job role, your child's name and class and your working pattern, if possible, so that we know which days your child will be in school. 

Thank you to everyone for your patience & understanding. We are extremely grateful to those parents & carers who have offered messages of support and are equally as frustrated as those who feel like they don't know what's going on. Staff who are able to remain in school are working extremely hard to share as much information as is available and offer the best possible education to all of our pupils, whether they are learning from home or joining us in school next week. 

Take care and we hope you all have a lovely weekend.
