Dear Parents - I will try not to bombard you with information. Where possible I will summarise things for you and give you clear information about how we are handling this difficult situation at Whipton Barton.
Please can I ask you to get your information from either us, or official government sources. I've already heard a bit of "someone told me" or "I heard somewhere". Check updates regularly both here on Facebook and on our website. On Monday we will need to ensure that the right children are in school.
Our aim is to ensure vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers are in school ONLY on the days they cannot be safely cared for elsewhere. As well as caring for these children, I also need to care for my staff, so reducing the number of children in school is key. I appreciate your support with this. The latest advice for parents is here: https://www.gov.uk/…/closure-of-educational-settings-inform… Please bear with us and support us as we will be supporting you during this period.
On the positive side, it might bring out the best in all of us! Have a good weekend - Mr Read
