I am sure that you are as concerned as I am that this evening’s announcement means that schools will be closed for the majority of pupils until further notice. Vulnerable pupils and children of key workers are still able to attend school and I ask you to send details and evidence of key worker status to the office by tomorrow lunchtime at the latest. Should you not be able to make child- care arrangements at this short notice then pupils (all families not just key worker) can come to school as normal tomorrow as a contingency and one day only arrangement.
I will be contacting you again tomorrow with arrangements for packs, timetables and remote learning after meeting with the staff before school tomorrow. I am so sorry that the latest directive is entirely out of my hands and that I, like you, had to watch the news to gain the information.
As you know I, together with the staff team, will do everything we can to try to mitigate damage to your child’s education.
With my support and best wishes,
Beecroft Primary School
