Dear Parents,
Thank you all for your patience and co-operation with regard to the seemingly ever changing situation.

From Monday 23rd March 2020 any pupils of Key Workers who need* to attend school may come dressed in their P.E. tracksuit or another plain track suit type outfit. Can we please remind you that children should only attend this provision if there are no possible alternatives and you should have already confirmed this place with school today.  *Where at all possible children should be cared for at home by a parent.

PLEASE NOTE: We WILL NOT be making phone calls to check on absent pupils. If your child has not arrived at school by 8:55am we will assume that s/he is being cared for at home. If you allow your child to walk to school alone parents should phone school by 9:30am to check that they have arrived safely.

The school day will begin at 8.55am and end at 3.25pm.
Daisychain are hoping to be available for the children who are attending school, dependent upon numbers. Please confirm with the staff at Daisychain if you require a place so they know numbers and required staffing – Telephone 07792 873911 or daisychainclub@btinternet.com

The school kitchen will remain open for those who usually take a school meal however, school fruit & milk will not be available so please ensure that your child has a water bottle and if you wish to send your child in with a healthy snack for mid morning please do so.

School will probably feel very different next week so please explain to your child that they may not be taught by their usual teacher, and that lessons will be less structured and class groups may be mixed.

Thank you again for all your support

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
