We recognise that many of you will be concerned about coronavirus and the implications and impact on your children. Some families, in particular, may be unclear on the possible impact on the 2020 exam series i.e. SATs. Our advice at this time is to continue to prepare for assessments as normal. These preparations will be adapted if schools are forced to close in the second phase of the national response to the virus.
We continue to work closely with the Local Authority and the Department for Education to ensure we have planned for a range of scenarios, as you would expect. Our overriding priority is to ensure your children are safe and that we keep disruption to a minimum.
In the event of a school closure, regular updates will be posted on the school website. Work and activities for your child will be e-mailed to the e-mail addresses you have provided to the school office. Further details of this process will be shared in the eventuality of a closure.
The guidance to schools remains relatively unchanged. Personal hygiene, particularly washing hands regularly, remains the most valuable strategy for reducing the spread of the virus. More specific guidance can be viewed in the attached document.
