Dear Parents and Carers,

We are looking forward to welcoming back your children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 6 and continuing to provide provision for the children of keyworkers.

Please follow the link below, or click on the menu tab on the left called 'Returning to School' for details on how to enter the school depending on which 'pod' your child is in and how the 'pod' will look. Please share this information with your child to make the transition less daunting.

Returning to School - Lockdown Easing

Dear Parents/Carers

I am sure after the Prime Minister’s Statement last night, there are lots of questions you have. We have lots of questions that need clarification too. 

At the moment, for us in school there is no change to the guidance involved.  We will provide care for those parents whose work is critical to the Covid 19 response and only those that cannot be safely cared for at home.  The message is still that it is safer to stay at home.

We have not received any information to support us with this new plan to start the phased re-opening of some year groups.  We expect we will receive further information from the DFE shortly, hopefully with some clarification.

We will need clear guidance to plan how it is possible to social distance in schools and keep our children, teachers and families safe; how we might start to phase groups of children returning and what this looks like.

Please be assured there is no way we will re-open until we are 100% prepared.

As always we will keep you informed, but for now please try not to worry.  Our plan for now is to continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep contact with you, our families, and continue to support each other in these very difficult and uncertain times.

Kind regards

RSC Davies & Mr Dowd

Important Health Advice for Parents - COVID19 symptoms in Children

There is a concern amongst leading paediatricians that in the current COVID pandemic, many families are not receiving the health and social care support they need and are less willing to attend hospital for their children's health care needs. This may result in delays before parents and children attend hospital. In some cases, this means they are seeing infants, children and young people later in the course of a health problem, so that some are arriving very sick, or worse, already deceased. The reason for this late attendance is the fear of acquiring COVID19 in hospital. 

As a result, schools, amongst others, are being asked to issue the following newsletter, which gives advice on what action to take should your child show COVID19 symptoms. Please take the time to familirise yourself with the contents or print off for future reference.

 

Free School Meals

The DfE have issued new guidance on the provision of Free School Meals, to those eligible, while schools are closed.  The DfE has developed a centrally funded national voucher scheme whereby vouchers will be emailed directly to those eligible.

We are currently awaiting further information from the DfE on how to apply for these vouchers.  This information is expected to be issued to schools later this week.  Once we have further information we will be in contact with all those who are eligible for the scheme.

 

School Trips and Residentials

Shugborough and Laches Wood Residential Visits

We have been advised by Entrust that these visits have not been cancelled and that they will be reviewing the situation over the coming weeks.  They will be looking at re-arranging visits wherever possible. 

School Trips / Visits

For any trips or visitors booked to come into school, we will be looking to re-arrange dates and will advise once new dates are finalised.

Should circumstances change we will notify you as soon as we can.
