Letter from Chair of Governors re closure and key workers
As you are aware, the Prime Minister has announced that all schools will close from today.
However, the Governing Body has decided to keep the school open during term-time from 9am to 3.25pm for the children of key workers as defined by the Department for Education.
This will be a limited provision and will offer those children a non-educational programme as home learning arrangements have already been made for all pupils by the school.
The school provision is only for the children of key workers who “absolutely need to attend and cannot be safely cared for at home.”
The government guidelines are very clear that it is “safer to keep your children at home.”
We will be reviewing this situation on a daily basis in line with any government guidance and the day-to-day situation on the ground with staff.
The school office will contact those key workers if provision needs to change.
We would like to thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time.
Very best wishes,
Caroline Malley Jayne Penston
Chair of Governors Vice Chair of Governors
