School Closure Information

You may have heard that the UK’s Education Secretary’s statement this afternoon in which he announced that school’s in England will be closing at the end of the school day on Friday, and quite possibly for an extended period of time.  It was also mentioned that that schools will still need to look after the children of key workers which are NHS staff, police and delivery drivers, as well as vulnerable children which includes children with EHCPs. We don’t know how this would work for our school with such a small number of these children and will await guidance from the authorities.

These are unprecedented events and we very much feel that we all have to ‘pull together’ to ensure that we support our school community the best we can.

As you are aware we have been preparing for this eventuality and have put a number of plans in place to ensure that we can continue to operate remotely, and provide learning opportunities for children to carry out at home.  In our update earlier this week, we informed you that class work would be set on the class pages on the school website.  We have also set up Class email addresses which will be active as of next Monday, where you can contact your class teacher regarding the work set.  These emails are as follow:-

class1@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk – Mrs Fox

class2@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk – Mrs Morris

class3@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk – Mrs Heath

class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk – Mr Harley

We do not expect pupils or teachers to operate to a set timestable as everyone will need to live their daily lives their own way.  However, teachers will respond to any emails between 10am and noon, each week day during term time.  Please do not expect responses at any time of the day, weekends or through the Easter Holidays.  Also, please note that the Easter holidays are from 6th – 18th April, so there will be no work set during these weeks (naturally reading, spellings, timestables can still be carried out!)

Mrs Harman will also be working from home and will respond to emails via the usual office email address: admin@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk during the same window of 10am to noon.

We are very much moving forwards blindly in a way as this has not been done before, so please bear with us if there are any glitches!  Again, openness and transparency are key, as is the importance of being a supportive team. Please keep referring to the school website: www.browncleeschool.org.uk as this will be the source of whole school news and classwork as we move forwards.

We are going to miss everyone, so please keep in touch and we look forwards to being back together as soon as we can.  In the meantime, we very much hope that everyone stays well and safe.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
