COVID-19 Update for Parents and Carers: 20th March 2020
Over the last few weeks, we have closely followed Government and Public Health England advice with headteachers, teaching and non-teaching staff across all of our nine Trust schools working incredibly hard to keep schools open until now.
In line with the Government’s announcement on Wednesday:
All Trust schools will close at the end of the school day on Friday March 20th and will remain closed until further notice for the majority of pupils.
As part of the initial announcement about school closures, the Government stated that:
Guidance published late on Thursday evening (19.3.20) has clearly identified the keyworker criteria for which children are able to access childcare at school.
To access this guidance from the Department of Education please visit this website:
WHO ARE CLASSIFIED AS KEYWORKERS?
If you feel you fall into one of these categories please contact School immediately and please also confirm with your employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, your specific role is necessary for the continued provision of your particular public service.
Our responsibility for safeguarding children will continue despite school closure and the new arrangements for limited childcare provision. If you have safeguarding concerns about any child please share them immediately with us:
Safeguarding Concern Reporting Number: 0121 231 7131
Be reassured that we intend to do our absolute best to maintain as much stability for children’s education as possible and we have been planning for this eventuality. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the school educational experience for children whilst at home, we have put in place contingency plans so that all pupils can access appropriate learning activities and teachers are able to continue to support learning albeit at a distance. Government advice to parents remains as follows until further notice:
