Coronavirus latest update – Sunday 29th March 2020
Easter Update SS Osmund and Andrew’s RC Primary
We are working closely with the LA to provide the best support for our families. Schools have been asked to open over the Easter holiday period to support key workers and therefore we plan to open on Monday 6th April following the specialist sanitisation.
If you fall into a key worker group and need childcare before this date please call one of the numbers below for advice and information regarding emergency childcare from another local school. Please call between 9.00am and 4.00pm on Monday 30th March.
The message from the government is to stay at home if it is possible, schools will be open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
“Schools can only accommodate a limited number of children and the fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread.” Boris Johnson.
If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the key sectors and you cannot keep your child safe at home then your children will be prioritised for education provision, we will do as much as we can to provide this here at SS Osmund and Andrew’s.
The guidance is the following list:
NHS including social care workers and care workers
Childcare teaching staff, nursery staff, special education professionals and social workers
Food production, processing and distribution
Key public services police, government agencies and national security
Utilities and communication
We appreciate that we already have some information from yourselves but ask if you would please confirm by telephone on Wednesday 1st April if you fall into the above categories and will require a childcare place. The school telephone will be staffed all day. This will allow us to plan accordingly for appropriate staffing ratios and childcare cover for Monday 6th April.
