School Closure & Emergency Provision

19th March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

After schools close on Friday 20th March 2020, they will remain closed until further notice except for children of key workers and vulnerable children, as part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus.

We believe that examples of key workers include NHS staff, police, firefighters, supermarket staff and delivery drivers who need to be able to go to work to support the country’s fight to tackle coronavirus. However, this list may change.

Vulnerable children include those who have a social worker and those with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Children who do not fall into these groups should remain at home with appropriate care.

We need to identify the number of children likely to need emergency provision at our school during the extended school closure period. If you believe you are a key worker (we are unsure at the moment whether this means both parents are key workers or one if you are a single parent) and require emergency provision, please contact the school office and provide the following information;

Job title, place of work, work contact number

If your child is classed as vulnerable (has an EHCP or a social worker) and you require emergency provision, please contact the school office and ask to speak to Mrs Edwards or Mrs Brewer.

Please be aware that this emergency provision may change when the government provides us with further details.

Thank you for your support during this difficult time.

Best wishes

Mrs Edwards

Head Teacher
