COVID-19 - Information for parents
The school remains closed, until further notice, except for vulnerable children and the children of eligible Key Workers who have registered with us and who cannot be safely cared for at home, which is in line with the Government guidance:
Childcare continues to be provided for the children of eligible Key Workers by prior arrangement only. This is so we are able confirm eligibility for Key Worker status and to provide the appropriate staffing levels. Please contact the office if you have a query: email@example.com
To ensure you receive important updates and letters via SchoolComms, please ensure the office has your most current contact details.
In addition to our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy, a separate safeguarding document has been produced which details our safeguarding procedures in response to COVID-19. Please click on the following link:

Free School Meals (FSM)– vouchers
A separate letter has been sent to the parents of children eligible for FSM about the Government voucher scheme for all families in receipt of Free School Meals (for eligible children who are not attending school). The vouchers are worth £15.00 per child, per week while the scheme is in place.
Please note: Universal Infant Free School Meals is a nationwide government initiative. EVERY child of infant school age is in receipt of this. It is different from Free School Meals (FSM). An application must be completed for you to receive FSM.
If your circumstances have changed and you believe you are eligible for FSM please click on the link below for the application process:

The school continues to support our families during this difficult time. Mrs Charlton is our Family Liaison Officer and is available to provide support and advice (via telephone and email). In certain circumstances, Mrs Charlton is able to issue Foodbank vouchers.

Mrs Charlton is available during normal school hours (8.30am to 3.30pm).
We will continue to update parents with any new information we receive via SchoolComms (as well as school website updates) so it is vital that the office has your most up to date contact details.
