COVID UPDATE 4.1.20
With the announcement this evening from Boris Johnson, informing us of a national lockdown and the closure of all schools, I am writing to inform you of the closure of both of our schools with immediate effect for most pupils. We will be open to the children of critical workers and those from vulnerable families from 0900 to 1530 from Monday to Friday and from tomorrow. If you are unsure whether your family falls into either of these categories, please click the link below where you will find a definition:
If you are a critical worker and there is another adult in the household who can look after your child whilst you are at work then your child should stay at home. If you are a critical worker and have no childcare and would like a place at school then please click the link below and complete the form to book a place for your child. Please do this as soon as possible so we can plan for staffing levels and school meals provision.
If you fall into the vulnerable family category, please click on the link below and complete the form as soon as possible so we can plan for staffing levels and school meals provision.
If your child is eligible for free school meals then I will get more information out to you as soon as we know what is happening. Sorry if this communication seems brief and harsh but we really need those numbers in so we can plan for the children who need to attend and for those who will stay at home. Remote/blending learning will commence for all pupils from tomorrow. If you have any queries at all then please don’t hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to provide the right support or information for you.
Take care everyone, stay safe and I will be in touch soon with more information.

Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, eSchools) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”.

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools, will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them. Schools that, for example, opt to track visitor data using Google Analytics will require “analytical” cookies to be enabled in order to do so.

We also enable schools to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow them to track visitors to and interactions with their school website.
Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one of our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
