School Closure January 5th
Monday 4th January 2021
As you will be aware the Government has confirmed this evening that all schools in England will remain CLOSED until after the February Half term holiday (Monday 22nd February) as part of the National Lockdown to reduce the transmission of Covid-19.
School will be closed to ALL children tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January).
Ingram Road Primary School, along with many other schools, will provide reduced provision which means school will be open to certain pupils with reduced staffing from Wednesday 6th January.
Please can you let us know by 1pm tomorrow if you would like your child to attend from Wednesday 6th January so that we can consider all requests.
We will send a survey via email/text/app.
Consideration will be given to children:
- whose parents are ‘key workers’, (click to see if you are a key worker)
- those who are in receipt of Free School Meals (if you receive certain benefits)
- who have a social worker
- who have an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan)
- those whose parents have requested support
We will aim to confirm places by the end of the day on Tuesday. Your child can only attend if we have confirmed the offer of a place and you may be requested to provide proof of key worker status from your employer.
Your child will NOT be able to attend school if a member of your household has Coronavirus OR if you and your family have travelled outside of the UK over the Christmas holiday. You must self-isolate for 10 days after the family member tested positive or after you returned to the UK.
If at the end of your isolation period, you would like your child to be considered for place for your child you must get in touch with school first and wait for confirmation of your place before you send your child to school.
If you are not offered a place your child must STAY IN YOUR FAMILY HOME with an adult and isolate to remain safe from the virus as per Government advice.
