Dear Parents and Carers
SCHOOL IS CLOSED FROM TUESDAY 5TH JANUARY 2021 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
The Government has announced tonight that parents are asked to keep their children at home wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open from tomorrow, Tuesday 5th January, only for those children who absolutely need to attend. It is stressed that schools, colleges and other educational establishments remain safe places for children but the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread, infect vulnerable individuals in wider society and overwhelm the NHS.
We are therefore, being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.
The Government has stated that many parents whose work is critical may still be able to ensure their child is kept at home and that every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. Parents are asked to follow these key principles:
- If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
- If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
- Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
As a result of this late notice, school will be closed for all children tomorrow. If you are unable to keep your child at home from Wednesday 6th January 2021 and fall into a critical worker group please complete our Critical Worker form – this can be found on our website at: https://www.sythwood.surrey.sch.uk/3320/covid-19-updates - please scroll to the bottom of the page. We will need a response to this by 12pm tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January 2021) to allow us time to form an appropriate plan.
Please note that if you have already responded to our letter earlier today about this, there is no need to re-submit your form.
All parents who are requesting a key worker place for their child will be asked to bring evidence of their key worker eligibility (for example an appropriate employment identification card or letter from their employer) on Wednesday 6th January 2021 for our records.
We will write to all parents and carers again tomorrow with more information on our plans and our approach to remote learning during this period.
We continue to navigate a turbulent and emotional time and I would like to thank everyone for their messages of support and encouragement. Please do contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01483 770063 if you or your child require our support.
