IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SCHOOL OPENING 20.03.20

20 March 2020 (by Gillian Keighley (gkeighley))

Clarity from Mrs Murray about school opening.

Dear Parents and Carers, there seems to be a bit of confusion about the government’s intention for ‘Key Workers’ and providing school for those who need it.

The government wants as many people as possible to self-isolate at home, to reduce social contact to fight this incredibly infectious virus. If it is at all possible for children of ‘Key Workers’ to stay at home with an adult who is not a ‘Key Worker’ this is what we need to do to stop the virus from spreading. Please do not send children into school unless you absolutely have to.

I would love to have all 370 children in school every day – but I have a social and moral obligation to follow out what the government has asked us to do to keep us all safe.

I hope this helps to clarify the situation.
