Following on from yesterday’s Government announcement, Wolverley Sebright will close from 3.00pm this Friday 20th March and will remain closed until further notice.
Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education has confirmed that schools will remain open for the children of key workers, and those who are most vulnerable. He stated that, “The scientific advice shows that these settings are safe for this small number of children to continue attending.”
Since this announcement regarding provision for vulnerable students and those of key workers, I provided my email address for parents to contact me with their details in order to plan ahead. I will contact those parents and carers who this affects by Friday afternoon with an overview of how we can support from Monday.
I am mindful that our plans will need to reviewed over the coming weeks. There will be staff unable to be in school following the updated advice of at-risk groups however, we will monitor this daily and will maintain all forms of communication: email, text, website, Twitter and Instagram.
In line with the Government announcement, children who are in receipt of free school meals will be supported. Further information regarding this will be shared as soon as we are notified of how this will be provided. Any children attending school who are eligible for free school meals will continue to receive their meals as normal.
Please can you encourage your son/daughter to contact school staff if they have any concerns. Emails have been shared for your child’s class teacher so please feel free to email any queries you may have in regard to remote learning we have provided. Staff will continue to provide resources and work for all students to complete. Please encourage your son/daughter to complete these tasks.
