PLEASE READ CAREFULLY – BE RESPONSIBLE – SUPPORT EACH OTHER
Following the announcement from the Government that school closure will not be "an educational setting" but a "safe place" for critical workers to leave their children and the publication of the ‘key worker’ list, we need to collect details of which families fall into this group so we can plan accordingly.

Helpful tips for life in Lockdown
URGENT: we have just received notification from the DFE:
'We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.
We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately'.

Coronavirus on Surfaces
We are contacting you following the government announcement this evening concerning measures to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
We are writing to you to consider if it is absolutely necessary to send your child/children to school tomorrow and for the next few weeks.
Whilst the need to support critical workers is vitally important we need to minimise the number of people travelling and coming into contact with others.
If you have been in contact with the school and agreed your children/children can attend but in light of the recent announcement do not wish for them to attend please email the school to inform us.
Thank you for your continued support in these challenging times.
You will probably all be aware of the announcement made regarding school closures from Friday 20 March 2020. We will consider the next steps and communicate with you as soon as possible.
The safety and welfare of students and staff are our highest priority.
Also, we would like to reassure all students preparing for public exams, that we will support them in achieving their next steps.
