Coronovirus: school closure letter 19.3.20

The following link provides further guidance regarding education provision for children of key workers.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision

While the list of key workers is quite extensive, it is important to consider the reason for closing schools and as stated in the guidance, ‘the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.’

So we ask parents that given the age of our pupils, even if you are a key worker, please consider keeping your child at home to protect them, your family and the wider community.
