We hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and well during these difficult times. As you know, the government directed all schools to close on 20th March 2020 other than to provide emergency childcare. The government guidance states: ‘We have asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children of workers critical to the COVID-19 response who absolutely need to attend.’ There is also provision where a risk assessment deems it is better for a child with an Education Health and Care Plan or one with an assigned Social Worker to attend. The government’s message is very clear: children should stay at home if at all possible - #StayHomeSaveLives
We are currently able to offer emergency childcare for those eligible which is open from 9.00am to 3.10pm Monday to Friday. We do not have provision on site to provide meals at this time and would ask that children are sent to school with a packed lunch.
Whilst we are committed to providing this care for vulnerable children and those of critical workers, there may be circumstances when we are unable to do so. Should that occur, we will work with the Local Authority to ensure that alternative provision is available. The Local Authority can be contacted on 01422 394101 or at email@example.com.
Please note that safeguarding remains our key priority and it is important that you share any concerns or worries about children’s wellbeing with us. Please contact school by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns.
During this difficult time, Free School Meals provision for those children eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals will be by using the voucher scheme, set up by the government. Details have been sent to all those who school know to be eligible. Please contact school using email@example.com or phone 01422 202086 (you may need to leave a message and a member of staff will get back to you) if you need any help in accessing Free School Meals. Further information about support available can be found on the Calderdale website at https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/coronavirus/advice-and-updates where there is also the facility to request support.
We are thinking of you all and are very much looking forward to the time when we can be fully open and return to normal service. Please stay at home, stay safe and keep watching our website, our Facebook page and Twitter for updates, advice and the ongoing support for children’s learning at home.
We sent packs home for all children for the first 2 weeks of the closure and understand that some of our children have worked through these. At present we are unable to ask parents to collect a follow on pack due to the lockdown position we find ourselves in.
Our website has a page called Home Learning March 2020, this is one of the main headers as you go on to the homepage. If you click on the title it will take you to information and lots of websites you can access. Each class has a page within this section, these are being updated on a daily basis including activities to do at home, work that the children can access, websites to use and messages from staff and children. We will also be adding projects for each class over the next few weeks for children to access after the holiday.
This is a very difficult time for families and staff in school, the thought of closing indefinitely does not sit well with many of us and is certainly not a position we would have placed ourselves in several weeks ago. However, the safety of our children, families and staff is the main priority. Rest assured, staff will communicate regularly with families whilst we are closed, both to share updates about the situation, but also to check in with our children.
Stay safe all,
Welcome to Cliffe Hill Primary School
