As you may have heard, the government is to close schools from the end of the day on Friday this week (20th March). This will be for the majority of children until further notice.
There are very few practical guidelines for how this will occur but schools are being asked to make provision for children who have parents who work in key roles - this list of roles will be provided to schools in the next few days. We will then be contacting all families to ask if you are included in this list and if you will still want your child to attend school. Some provision will also be occurring for vulnerable children (the criteria is to be outlined by the government in the next few days).
We expect this to be a small number of pupils.
I am aware this will be very difficult but we are unable to offer childcare to other sector workers.
This is a significant development and, at this time, we have very little information as to how this will work.
Harrington will be open tomorrow and Friday as usual. Panda Club will continue this week - I shall make enquiries regarding future provision.
As soon as we know more details, we will communicate this to you. Your patience is appreciated and greatly needed at the crucial, distressing time.
