Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are no doubt aware by now, the Government yesterday announced that all schools, colleges and early years settings will close from Monday 23rd March 2020 for the foreseeable future, except for children of key workers and vulnerable children.
At present, we have no detailed information on the definitions of these categories, although we expect guidance to be issued shortly. In the meantime, can we ask, that if you consider yourself in one of these categories (NHS staff, police, provide support for the vulnerable, social workers, probation officers, teachers and school staff, delivery drivers) please get in contact with us as soon as possible. We need to establish how many families are affected by this and what support we may be able to offer.
We remain open today and tomorrow as normal but as of Monday it is our intention to close. We will obviously keep you informed as the situation evolves.
Please look after yourselves and your families in these uncertain times and rest assured, we will be back up and running as soon as we possibly can, in line with Government guidance.
Tracey Owen (Supervisor), Clare Farley and Carly Hood (For and on behalf of the Committee)
