This is a copy of the message I posted to Class Dojo this evening.
I am sorry to be messaging you at this time of night. However, the prime minister's announcement came with no prior warning for schools. I am so sorry for the short notice of this message but I have just finished watching the broadcast and just come off of the phone with the chair of governors.
From tomorrow in line with government rules, we will be closed to all pupils APART FROM THE CHILDREN OF KEY WORKERS AND THOSE JUDGED VULNERABLE.
Below, is an interim guide of who we can accept at school tomorrow. Please read the list and could you let me know if you are planning on sending your children in by 8.30am tomorrow morning so I can judge numbers:
If your child has an EHC plan
If your child is a 'Child in Care'
If your child has a social worker attached
If your child is classed as a 'Child in Need'
If you and your family are getting support from the Early Help Hub.
I circulated this list last lockdown and will message all parents tomorrow to check I have the most up to date list for all of you. If you think you are a key-worker and would like to send your child in tomorrow, please contact me with your job title and the fact that you would like to send your child back.
During the week, we will continue to refine and add to our list of children for who we can offer places and will be in contact. As you can appreciate, I am doing my best to serve all of you at very short notice.
For those of you whose children will have to remain at home, please accept ,my apologies, I have acted as quickly as I could given the lack of notice from the prime minister.
We will post work on Class Dojo in your normal classes from tomorrow, but please bear with us. It will take us a couple of days to get back into our new normal routine.
I will be in contact with details of what we will be offering all pupils and how we will continue to assist you. I will also be in contact with those of you who qualify for free school meals about how we will continue to provide your children with the lunches to which they are entitled.
I apologise for the length of this message and if I have not yet provided an answer to what you wanted to know. Please bear with me, I will be in further contact tomorrow and through the week,
Stay safe and take care
