Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

Day 1 of school of school closure now over!  We had 19 students in school directly supported by four members of staff with a small number of other staff around to ensure the smooth running of the school. The staff made sure the students had a busy and productive day, including a fitness session in the sports hall where each student was a good 2m away from their nearest neighbour!  The students understood the necessity of social isolation and good hand hygiene and we could not have asked anymore of them today. The latest government advice (given below) is to keep children at home if at all possible, and whilst the school will stay open as long as we can, the fewer the children we have in the building, the better for all of us.

Thank you to everyone for acting so sensibly.

Latest News from the DfE

Guidance for schools about temporarily closing

We have asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.

It is important to underline that schools, all childcare settings (including early years settings, childminders and providers of childcare for school-age children), colleges and other educational establishments, remain safe places for children. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.

Schools, and all childcare providers, are therefore being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.

While as many schools as possible should try to stay open for eligible pupils, this will not be possible for all settings and the local authority should coordinate pooling of resources so pupils are able to access provision elsewhere.

The following Q&A should be read alongside the:

guidance on critical workers

guidance on COVID-19 for vulnerable children and young people
