Coronavirus – Government Announcement 18/03/20

Date: March 19th 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

As you will have heard yesterday, the Government announced that “after schools shut their gates from Friday afternoon, they will remain closed for the vast majority of pupils until further notice.”

Our schools had already started preparing for this news, but, as you can imagine, there is a lot of detailed work to be done by our teachers and support staff over the next few days to ensure that we can make provision for all of our students during the time that their school is closed.

Your school will be in contact with you as soon as possible to inform you of arrangements and to ask for information the school may need from you to enable us to support your children in this period. Please could we ask you to keep an eye out for messages from school over the next two days and to respond to them where asked to as soon as possible?

Our schools will send messages via your usual school / parent messaging service and post them on their website. We will also pass on information from the Government concerning GCSE and sixth-form exams as soon as we have it. At the moment we are waiting for further information from the Department for Education on this.
