We are aware that the Prime Minister is due to speak to the country at 8pm this evening, and that the media are hinting that a lockdown might be imminent.
At the moment we are planning for the school to be fully open to all children tomorrow and staff have been in school preparing for the start of the new term, which included reviewing the risk assessment and procedures that we have in place to manage the risk of coronavirus. This risk assessment will be shared tomorrow on the school’s website.
However, if a lockdown (including school closures)is announced this evening and if it begins at midnight, then school will need to be closed tomorrow for everyone (including Care Club) as we will need planning and preparation time to put remote learning and keyworker care plans in place.
We have no idea what the Prime Minister is going to announce, but we thought it helpful to be prepared for the worst and keep you informed. Can we please ask that you monitor the school news on the website and email, as these will be the key source of information. Please be patient and bear with us.
