As you will have heard all schools in England will close on Friday evening.
Plans are being put in place to make sure that all families who need support during this difficult time are helped. This will include families where parents are in jobs that we need to continue functioning: specific shop jobs, delivery jobs, dustbin staff, hospital staff, care workers, police etc. The plans also include providing food for families who are entitled to feed school meals.
In the longer term the Local Authority is aiming to have some schools open across the city to support everyone, in the short term (next week) Little Heath will be putting in place the following plans:
The children who can come to school are children who have an EHCP, are under Social Care or parents who are in the list of key workers. We will provide a meal for these children at lunchtime.
We can also provide a packed lunch for any children who normally receive a free school meal. You would need to come to school to collect these meals.
Please could you let the school know if you need a school place and if you would like to order a packed lunch and you will come and collect it. You can do this by ringing the school, sending me an email or using the contact page on the school website.
We want to stay in contact with our families, we will use text, our Facebook page and the website.
We hope that the situation is under control as soon as possible and that we will all be back in school.
