Dear Parents and Carers,
Following the release of the Key Worker list very late last night we are working as quickly as we can to establish our arrangements for next week.
I will shortly be sending out a more detailed survey by a text link.
You MUST complete this survey if you require care for all or part of the day on MONDAY or TUESDAY only. ( We will plan the rest of the week on Monday.)
Please also read the Government Advice before deciding if you really need to access the care and you have no other provision.
The staff here are really appreciative of all that other Key Workers are doing and we want to do our best to maintain essential services across the country. Our provision may change if more staff become unavailable and it may be that in the future provision is shared with other local schools.
Please only make use of the Care Facility we are offering if you really need to. We need to limit numbers as much as possible to ensure the health of all our children and staff.
With the exception of children with an Education Health and Care Plan , who have been contacted separately, we can only provide care when
- You are actually working ( we will be open 7:30am until 6:00pm – see below)
- There is no alternative care provision available to you
- Your child is well
- They have no underlying health conditions ( Children with these conditions are STRONGLY advised to stay at home
- You are not in isolation
In the first instance children will need to bring a packed lunch , snacks and a water bottle ( even if they are an infant child ). Arrangements to provide food in school are very unlikely to be made by Monday.
All children and staff arriving at school will have their temperature taken and anyone with a temperature of 37.8 or over will be sent home.
For children who are already booked into Y2K please make contact with them to discuss their arrangements.
Children should come in their own clothes and we are hoping to spend time outside where possible. When children are in school they will spend their time in the school hall and Infant classrooms. The first hour and a half each day will be dedicated to the on-line learning that has been set by the teacher. There will then be other activities made available. Our care will be staffed by teachers, non- teaching staff and volunteers – in line with our safeguarding policy- on a rota. We are being encouraged to have a very limited number of staff in school at any one time. Staff who are unwell, have underlying health needs or are the key carer for someone with underlying health needs will not be in school.
Mrs G Ryding
