Help and Support
I just wanted to touch base with you during this difficult time and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
As you will have heard on the news last night, the latest advice from the Government is for people to stay at home. There are just 4 exceptions to this –
- Shopping for basic necessities such as food and medicine. Shopping trips should be as infrequent as possible
- One form of exercise a day such as a run, walk, or cycle. This should be done alone or only with people you live with
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. This includes moving children under the age of 18 between their parents' homes, where applicable. Key workers or those with children identified as vulnerable can continue to take their children to school
- Travelling to and from work, but only where work absolutely cannot be done from home
Please follow these latest guidelines in order that we can all do our best to keep everyone safe.
I am sure you are all now getting into the ‘flow’ of home learning! The teachers will continue to put ideas and activities on the website. Children like routine, so where possible, use these activities to support a new routine. However, please do not get stressed about it. Being at home together all day can be stressful enough so remember the importance of playing games together, sharing stories – encouraging your child to read to you every day. Don’t worry if fractions are not going down too well!!
During the difficult weeks ahead, we will always do what we can to support you. If you have any worries that you feel we may be able to help you with - do not hesitate to get in touch. We will constantly check the office email account (firstname.lastname@example.org). As the main school line may not always be manned, you can also get in touch with us Mrs Tidd on the school mobile 07784 693035.
In the meantime, stay indoors and keep your family safe.
