Dear Parents and Carers,
You will have seen some information released this week about Free School Meals (FSM) provision.
From Monday 20th April the Government will issue Free School Meals vouchers to parents and carers of pupils eligible for FSM. This new system will be to the value of £15 per week per child. As we have set up a voucher system this month it should come into your emails in a similar way.
If you have changed your email or not received it please contact email@example.com
Please do not message on Facebook or Messenger as the admin team will not get this message!
This new system does not begin until after Easter, and the Government says schools should not support over Easter, however we will still be issuing our £8 vouchers each week until this happens.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following

Have a lovely Easter. Look after each other.

If your child is due to attend school on Monday please read the following carefully.
The school day will be 9am – 3pm and pupils need to attend in full school uniform. Please only use the bottom car park and entrance to school and come as close to the above times as possible. You will clearly see markers on the floor should there be a que into school, please ensure you keep to these marks to ensure social distancing requirements. Do not bring bookbags, packed lunches etc as we have everything we need in school. Please only bring your child’s water bottle which is clearly named.
Please work with staff on Monday and follow their lead to ensure a smooth and quick transition into and out of school.
We have just received further information from the government regarding the arrangements being put in place for ‘Critical Workers’ to be able to continue to send their child to school during the Corona outbreak. You can see the full guidance here Guidance We are working as quickly as possible with our staff and the support of the Trust to get provision in place but this will take a little time and we really need your help.
There are several key points to bear in mind:
Dear Parents and Carers,
Apologies first for sending out so much information at once but please do take the time to read it.
I would like to thank you for all of your support, understanding and patience over the past few weeks as we tried to respond to Government guidance re. the Coronavirus. You are all aware that yesterday we received notice to close schools from Friday this week and we are currently in the process of planning for this.
Whilst there are still many ‘unknowns’ we are able to plan for a few ‘knowns’ and I would like to share details with you. Throughout the school closure period I will keep you up to date with developments via emails and text messages.
1. Schools have been asked to provide a childcare service for Key Workers who have no alternative childcare provision. Whilst we wait for greater clarity on this we have started to build a picture of how many children this may involve in order to plan for a service,
Dear parents and carers,
We write to share the most recent guidance that we have received regarding Corona virus (COVID19) and outline our school’s response to this guidance. We have also attached a link to guidance taken from the GOV.UK website which explains how to keep yourselves safe at home should you develop symptoms, https://www.gov.uk/…/publica…/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance
At the moment the Government and Public Health England state that they have moved from the containment part of their plan to the delay part; this is designed to slow down the spread of the virus using the following methods:
· Frequent handwashing.
· Staying at home for seven days if you have a new persistent cough and/or fever.
We continue to ensure that children and staff wash hands on arrival at school, after playtime, before lunch, after lunchtime and after afternoon play, children are also being asked to wash their hands if they sneeze, cough or blow their noses.
