St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Letter to parents 20 March

From Friday 20 March 2020 school is closed until further notice for vast majority of children. Families should be self-isolating and avoiding social contact. Children should not be playing out.

A few children are able to come into school for child care but this is for the key workers and vulnerable children. These families have been contacted and will receive an additional letter in an envelope tonight. The maximum number of children we can take is 35 (20% of our intake). Please note that normal education is suspended for all children.

Staff will be in school and you can phone school for advice. We will continue to support our families as much as possible.

Those children entitled to free school meals will be contacted next week regarding food parcels. Please remember these are only for those families who have applied online for free school meals and have been approved. This is not the same as children in Key stage 1 and Reception class who receive universal free school meals.

Staff will continue to work both in school and from home. Further information will be sent out as soon as we know anything. We will keep you updated regarding food banks and food markets.

We appreciate that this is a very difficult time for our whole school community and we thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times. Remember that we are only a phone call away.

Many thanks

Mrs R Hughes
