The latest advice from the government is as follows:
‘As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing.
And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
The fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.’
Tonight, your child will come home with a ‘Home Learning Pack’, which contains a wide selection of age-appropriate activities to support your child’s education whilst the school is closed for the vast majority of our pupils. If your child is not in school today, packs will be available for collection from the front office on Monday. As the weeks progress, further packs will be made available.
