National Lockdown - advice and guidance
Please use the following link for a survey to feedback on Home Learning provision. We would welcome any comments about the provision we are making for children who attend our school.
Following the announcement on Monday 4th January at 8.00pm by Boris Johnston, The Wilfred Owen School will only remain open for Vulnerable Children and those children where both parents are in jobs critical to the Covid response or where a single parent has a job vital to the Covid response.
Once we have allocated these places, we will consider, if we have further space, families where only one parent is a key worker.
The Government Advice at the present time is that, wherever possible, all members of the public should ‘Stay home, Save lives and Protect the NHS’. This is the basis for the decision we are making in school to ensure that we can protect, children, staff and the wider community from the increased risk from the new Covid strain. This means all year groups, including Nursery, will only offer provision to those groups listed above.
We will be restricting numbers in school, as directed by the Government. Once we have reached the capacity in each class, we will not be able to offer any further places. Wherever possible, your priority should be to find an alternative arrangement to sending your child into school.
In the event of a positive case, we will be closing the class down and insisting that children self-isolate for the period recommended by the NHS. We need to act quickly on any potential cases and parents with children in school will have to make arrangements at short notice to collect their child.
Below will be documents and guidance to support you through the lockdown period. Please use these rather than phoning school.
We are in the process of arranging free school meal provision and will be in contact with those families as soon as possible.
