After only contacting you yesterday to inform you that the Government had stated that Primary Schools in our area were safe for children to attend, after tonight's announcement at 8pm, by Boris Johnson, it is with regret that I now inform you that the Government have made the decision to close all schools for the majority of children as of tomorrow Tuesday 5th January, until further notice.
Rather like the first set of school closures, our school will remain open only for a small number of children whose parents are classed as key workers. If you feel that your child falls into this category because both parents are key workers and there is no-one in your care bubble that can supervise their remote learning, and you are therefore unable to keep your child at home, then please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience. Every child, whether in school or not, will move to remote learning as of tomorrow from 1pm. Teachers need the morning to collect resources and ensure questions/queries are answered please. Information about our Remote Learning Policy & Plan can be found on our website, along with help sections if needed. Lessons will be delivered remotely on Microsoft TEAMs and attendance registers will be taken during both morning and afternoon sessions. It is imperative that your child takes part in this online learning to avoid any detrimental impacts to their education, through this ongoing unprecedented situation that we all find ourselves in.
If you have any questions at all or would like more information about your child's learning, then please get in touch using the enquiries email, where you will be directed towards the best placed staff member to answer your concerns.
I do apologise for the short notice of this information. It is very unfortunate and incredibly frustrating that schools are given no prior notice of such changes that inevitably impact so greatly on the education of all of our children.
I will be in touch again during the coming days to ensure you are kept fully informed. We must all now do all we can to continue to protect ourselves, our families and our communities. Thank you for your continued support.
