Dear Parents / Carers
Re: Coronavirus Advice
As I am sure you are aware, the latest Government advice is for schools to remain open. However, the latest update instructs whole household isolation for families of those displaying a ‘new continuous’ cough or high temperature for 14 days. This means that should your child – or anyone else in your house - develop these systems they should be off school for two weeks.
The Government have advised to avoid non-essential travel and increased “social distancing”. As a result, with immediate effect, we have decided to:
We have drawn up a plan for remote learning for children, affected. To enable this to be as effective as possible, please ensure you are registered on Class Dojo, as soon as possible. You do not need the app
We are hoping to continue as much as possible with our planned learning for all children, but I am sure you will understand that some changes (e.g. different teacher, less TAs) may be necessary. This is a rapidly changing situation and I will issue daily updates on the website, Class Dojo on our approach to this national emergency.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr John Howe
