COVID-19: Impact on school
Dear parents and carers,
As you are aware from the Prime Minister's announcement on 4th January 2021, school is currently closed to the majority of pupils and will only be will be open for face to face provision for the children of key workers and vulnerable pupils. Nursery (Ducks) remain open. I must stress that we are in an unknown position with a new virus strain that is believed to be far more transmittable. If you are able to keep your child at home, please do so.
Parents who feel their circumstances have changed since you were initially asked to complete online forms about school provision for your child will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to inform myself and I will contact you directly.
Remote learning is now in place for all pupils, including Ducks. Updated details about Remote Learning have been posted below. Please read these carefully. It is important that remote learning is valued and the children are encouraged to participate in this to the very best of their ability. The learning mirrors curricular coverage in school.
If your child is in receipt of benefit-based Free School Meals, provision for the weeks beginning 18th and 25th January was provided through food parcels that were distributed this week. Vouchers will resume for the week beginning 1st February.
We have received information, from Dudley Council's Public Health Team, on the expansion of testing and the recommendation for people to arrange COVID-19 tests if any of a wider range of symptoms are displayed (including loss of appetite, sore throat, extreme tiredness, sneezing, headaches, diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, muscle or joint pain, running nose or congestion). Please read this information (shown below) carefully.
Thank you very much to those of you who have supported us with the measures we have put in place- we must work together in order to keep our school community safe.
