Information for key workers and the parents of vulnerable children
RE: CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) – UPDATE 19th MARCH 2020
Following the announcement yesterday by the Secretary of State for Education we would like to inform you of the arrangements we are beginning to make with regards the education of children whose parents are listed as key workers, or vulnerable children. These arrangements apply to all three of our academies
Carlton Park Primary Academy
Parkside Primary Academy
Summerfields Primary Academy
In the first instance we need to ascertain how many places will be required on each of our sites. If you are a parent and fall into the listed categories of key workers can you, please contact school via email or telephone to register your need for a place. We will telephone those parents listed under the vulnerable children criteria.
We respect that some parents who fall into these categories may still wish to keep their children at home.
Contact details are.
Once we have ascertained the number of places required, we will decide whether we need to open all three sites (including Parkside), or whether we can offer a shared provision. We will consider if parents have access to transport arrangements and whether one site is more suited to a child’s specific needs. We will keep parents informed whilst formulating these plans to consider any specific requests.
As directed, we are intending to open this specific provision on Monday 23rd March
Please note this provision is only for the children of those parents who fall into the listed government categories.
Entitlement to Free School Meals
As soon as we have more information with regards this entitlement, we will inform parents of our intended actions.
These are unprecedented times and we fully appreciate your support in this matter.
