Are you struggling to explain what Coronavirus is to your children. Please find attached a very useful factsheet that has been produced by Alderhey Children’s Hospital and has been adopted by the Great North Children’s Hospital. It aims to provide further information to young people using age appropriate language and graphics.
Dear Parents / Carers
Government are working closely with local authorities to find a way to provide shopping vouchers to parents of children who are eligible for free school meals.
(This is benefits based and not to be confused with the universal infant free school meal provision.)
Until we know the finer details and the way you will access them, could you please complete the Pupil Parent Information form as soon as possible this will allow us to contact you as soon as an announcement is made.
If you think you may now be eligible to access this provision because of your current work status due to the Coronavirus pandemic, don’t hesitate to email the school office. Please include your children’s names, your current address and phone number.
I will contact you as soon as an announcement is made.
Dear Parents and families,
As the situation with coronavirus continues to develop we are asking you to carefully consider whether or not your child needs to be in school.
We appreciate that the central government guidance around what constitutes a key worker is quite broad, however we would like to remind you that the reason schools are remaining open is primarily to ensure that those frontline workers who are key to helping this country get through this situation, can get to work.
Each school will have different levels of demand for these places and may handle this situation differently in order to ensure the welfare of all staff and children. We ask you to respect any restrictions your school may put in place to help them cope during these challenging times.
Finally can we remind you that in line with Public Health England guidance, the best place for your child, wherever possible is at home with you, helping to maintain good social distancing for our wider community.
