CORONAVIRUS - Update 23.03.2020

 

23 March 2020

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Can we clarify, government Guidance is that all children should not be in school if they can be safely cared for at home.

 

These are difficult times for all but we have to look at the number of staff and children in school and actively seek to reduce this making the spread of the virus as minimal as possible.

 

Key workers – where there is a partner who is not a key worker, they should look after children at home.

 

We have to stress again children should not be sent in to school poorly as this can be a risk to all vulnerable children and staff.

 

Thank you

 

 

  

AA Zielinski

Head Teacher

Update 20.03.2020

We have already sent out a text advising parents that we will be open on Monday but I am writing to confirm this in case anyone hasn't picked up on their texts.

 

My apologies for any anxieties caused by the delay in giving you this but confirmation from the local authority and central government was only received last night that all our staff were to be classified as Key Workers and therefore to continue in work.

 

Our intention is for the school to operate as it normally does unless there is a significant change in circumstances. We do not feel it would be in our pupils’ best interests to alter the nature of our service to basic child minding or a play scheme approach.

So we will continue to provide our planned educational and therapeutic programmes for as long as we can.

 

It's possible we may have a few situations where some of our staff have to come in slightly later than usual due to their own child minding arrangements.

Can I ask, where possible, that parents who bring their child into school themselves delay coming in until 9.30. This will help ease any staffing shortages first thing.

 

Please help us by letting us know as soon as possible if you intend for your child to stay at home or if they are ill.

 

I have attached a copy of the latest Government guidance for Parents and Carers. There are links to other GOV.UK information in this document.

Information and any consequent arrangements regarding the children of those parents deemed Key Workers who may need provision over Easter will be organised over the course of next week.

In the meantime if you feel that you come into the category of a Key or Critical Worker and you have to continue to attend for work and no arrangements can be made for looking after your child then please contact the school with your details. (It would be preferable if you emailed these details to bmhpss@hpark.org.uk)

 

The Local Authority have advised us that all statutory procedures relating to the review and processing of EHCPs have been suspended until further notice. We will however continue with our own assessment and evaluation processes but there will be no review meetings held.

 

I am sure that we can look forward to everyone pulling together for the common good.

This a difficult time and there are still some uncertainties regarding the detailed application of broad government advice but we will do our best to keep you informed.
