A Values Based School

School closed - except pupils of key workers

As you will know, all schools are closed to pupils except those of key workers and vulnerable children.

If you work in one of the public services listed or if your child fits one of the vulnerable children categories below, please inform the school that your child will be attending:

  • National Health Service (including paramedics and ambulance drivers)
  • Armed forces
  • Teachers, school support and childcare staff
  • Care home workers
  • Social workers
  • Police officers, Community support, civilian staff
  • Prison officer or other probation staff
  • Fire Fighters
  • Essential delivery drivers (such as those supplying supermarkets and hospitals)
  • Essential service staff (such as food production, supermarket or pharmacy personnel)
  • Children with Education Health Care Plans
  • Children with an assigned social worker

Please be aware that staffing will be limited so if you have another responsible person over the age of 18 who lives in your household, you should make arrangements for care to be provided at home.

Our intention is to provide a daily childcare provision from 8.00am to 5:30pm in your child’s own school before and after school hours with education based activity in smaller than usual groups of children working with teaching staff during school hours. In this time children will complete the same tasks set for pupils working at home but staff will support them with the work. Lunch will be provided to all children attending, although you may send in a packed lunch if preferred.

This situation and offer may change as time goes on but we will continue to evaluate and plan ahead as much as possible, communicating changes as we go along.

Thank you for your on-going support in these challenging and difficult times.
