Coronavirus update – School closure details

Mrs Butterworth has issued a further update regarding school closure from Monday.

Following on from my last update, I’m now writing to let you know that we have now been instructed to close the school to almost all children after this Friday until further notice. Please note that the After School Club will continue as normal on Thursday and Friday this week, but all activity clubs have been cancelled with immediate effect.

As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services) and children with certain needs.

If you do fall into this category and require support to allow you to go to work, it is essential that you contact as by tomorrow to inform us of your role and whether or not you wish to make use of this facility. This is so that we have a clear idea of the number of children involved and will arrange cover and meals accordingly. Please phone, text, email or report to the school office by 3.30 pm tomorrow.

Update 20/3/2020 – The government has published the full list of jobs falling into the key worker definition. – see details here.
