Dear parents and families,
Following the announcement last week that schools were to close to the majority of children, school this week has been open for for a few children. Over the weekend we asked you as parents, to consider your childcare after having a large number of people who indicated that they would be continuing to go to work. The childcare that schools are currently offering is for those children who ABSOLUTELY need to attend.
I appreciate that so many of you have made alternative arrangements so fewer children will make the journey to school, fewer children will be in our education setting so we can lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
Many thanks for all your messages of support for the staff who are working hard and supporting the COVID-19 response. They are testing times and perhaps a little overwhelming at moments as we try to balance family life, professional life and our responsibilities as members of the wider community. The team are working tirelessly to provide a safe and calm environment for all our families who need emergency childcare.
Please remember to keep us updated with any changes in status linked to self isolation, illness and your working commitments. You may send an email through the contact form on the website, this will be monitored and responses will be made during school opening hours.
I wanted to share with you a website link that lets you know where you can watch Mass live streamed and share the Catholic Bishops’ of England and Wales booklet on celebrating the Liturgy of the Word and Spiritual Communion when public Mass is suspended. https://www.churchservices.tv
Take care and best wishes,
Be part of the national effort to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Be responsible & keep your child at home.
