Please see the attached link for a video from the Director of Children and Young People’s Services with advice to parents/carers:
Free School Meals
Any eligible pupils in Years 3 - 6 who are absent from school either because they or a household member have COVID-19 symptoms are entitled to a free school meal should the family want it. If you fall in to this category (i.e you are entitled to free school meals and have a child in Years 3-6 and they are absent from school due to COVID-19) please contact school to arrange either to collect or have delivered a school packed lunch.
Further guidelines regarding wider opening of school for Year 6 pupils.
We have today received updated guidance from Steve Reddy, Director of Children and Young People’s Services. Following recent information about the virus and advice from local Public Health colleagues we are advised against any wider openings to children on 15 June. We will continue to follow the guidance issued by the local authority and in carrying out risk assessments. Unfortunately, this means that Year 6 pupils will not be allowed to return on this date. This will also mean that the date for other year groups will inevitably be put back further. However, the school remains open for pupils of key worker parents/carers, vulnerable pupils and those with an EHC plan. If you wish to book your child in for a place next week, week beginning Monday 15 June, and are in one of the eligible groups, please contact school before 12 noon on Thursday 11 June. We will continue to keep you informed of any further developments as soon as we receive them. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please note that the children of Key Workers, vulnerable children and pupils with an EHCP WHOSE PARENTS/CARERS HAVE CONTACTED SCHOOL AND REQUESTED A PLACE are allowed in school on Monday 8th June. We only have sufficient staff on duty to supervise those children whose families have requested a place.
Also note that children should not bring schools bags, pencil cases or other items to school. Packed lunches should be brought in plastic, disposable bags, which will be binned once lunches have been eaten. Children can bring in a water bottle for their sole use. School has sufficient provision of hand sanitizers, tissues etc and there is no need for families to send such items in with their child.
See the document below for more detailed information on the reopening and return to school. Please refer to this page regularly for updates on the further opening up of school to wider pupil groups. We will publish updated plans as soon as we are made aware of them.
