Government announcement on closure of schools

The Government has announced this evening that schools will close on Friday for the foreseeable future, to try to limit and control the spread of COVID-19.  This decision to close schools is a huge one and has been taken to keep the general population safe, particularly those with medical conditions, as well as preserving NHS resources for us all. However, the Government is also keen for schools to stay open and provide support and education for  vulnerable children and those whose parents are key workers. (A full list of key worker categories is to be published by the Cabinet Office.)

Vulnerable children have been defined as those who receive the support of a social worker and children with an Education and Health Care Plan. This will mean there will be a limited number of children and staff in school.  The Government is very clear that children who do not fall into these groups must be supervised at home. Teachers will provide work, so that children can continue to learn whilst they are unable to attend school. Our Governors and School Leadership Team are fully supportive of this strategy and school staff will do all they can to support the  children who will remain in school and those at home.

Once there is a definitive list of key worker categories, we will need parents to contact us if they fall into one of these and are absolutely unable to supervise their children at home. The list is likely to include NHS staff and those who work in the emergency services, but there will be other key workers identified as well.

The Rosary School staff team have been busy preparing in anticipation of this announcement and we hope to continue to provide educational and pastoral support for all our families. The patience and co-operation of  parents in these challenging times will be much appreciated.
