Free School Meals Voucher Scheme
We will be providing a food voucher scheme for families entitled to free school meals. We are hoping that this will start week commencing 27th April and a weekly food package will be available week commencing 20th April until the scheme is up and running. As soon as the voucher scheme is in place we will notify the eligible families by email.
Child Care Arrangements for Key Worker Families after the Easter Holidays.
All children eligible for the Outer West Learning Trust Easter club offer have been contacted and places allocated. After the Easter holidays we will resume the Westerhope childcare offer and school will be open with a skeleton staff on a rota. We will allocate places but remember the advice is STAY at HOME
Please be assured our school and local authority continue to monitor the changing situation with regard to Coronavirus COVID-19.
Message from our Secretary of State....You should only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. Stay Home...Save Lives!
All schools in the city are currently closed after Friday 20th March 2020. School will remain open for children of key workers as well as children with particular educational needs. These parents will have had communication from the school office to inform them of the child care arrangements. Note that no parent or carer should bring a child into school without authorisation.
For those attending please note our advice is that those with either a new, continuous cough or high temperature should self isolate for 14 days. If your child is showing either of these symptoms, please keep them at home and ring the school office with the reason for absence. For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. Anyone living in a household with a person with COVID-19 symptoms should also self isolate for 14 days. We continue to encourage the practice of good respiratory and hand hygiene at home and in school.
