Dear Parents

 

Please see the attached letter with regard to school closures.  

 

There will be a partial closure of schools from Friday 20th March 2020.  We are very sorry but parents will not be invited to attend the celebration assembly on Friday 20th March. 

Key Workers - schools will continue to provide education and child care for children of key workers. Please follow this link to find Key Worker information https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision If you feel that you fall into the key worker category, please click here to download a form which can be returned to the school office tomorrow.  It will help us to plan effectively to support your child. 

Free School Meals -  https://www.gov.uk/government/news/plans-set-out-to-support-pupils-eligible-for-free-school-meals Shipley CE is negotiating with our catering company; we hope to be able to provide meals for all eligible pupils from our canteen each day. This will be in the form of a grab bag or a hot meal each day.  We will be asking parents to indicate whether their child will be requiring this service. 

Distance Learning - Shipley teachers will be providing distance learning materials for our pupils. Please click here to access the school's information on distance learning page. 

We will continue to provide advice on our website and via Dojo messaging. 

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs Angela Smith

Head Teacher
