Coronavirus Information

URGENT 19.03.2020

 

Dear Parents/carers,

 

As you were informed this afternoon, Hanborough Manor School will be closed after Friday 20th March until further notice. There will be a provision in place as of Monday 23rd March for the children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children. As a school we will be in touch with the parents of our vulnerable children but for staffing and catering measures we need to know how many of our families have key workers as parents. The government’s example of key workers at this time are NHS staff, police, teachers, social care/prison workers, care home workers and supermarket delivery drivers. If one parent/carer is a key worker the government will expect the other parent/carer to work from home and look after their child/ren in line with their social distancing guidance. Single parents/carers who are key workers will be entitled to a childcare place at school when needed.

 

The science experts tell us that having a small number of children in school will​be safe, but they want the majority of children to stay at home to slow the spread of the virus. We will be providing supervision Monday to Friday 8.50am – 3pm for the children of families who fall into these categories.

 

If you will require this supervision from Monday 23rd March 2020 because you are a key worker without another parent/carer who can stay at home, could you please let us know by email to office.3147@hanborough-manor.oxon.sch.uk by midday on Friday 20th March. Please put ‘KEY WORKER’ in the subject line and include the names of your child/ren and which days you would require along with your job role(s).

 

If you or anyone in your family have or have had a new persistent cough or temperature so your family are under self-isolation for 14 days then please let us know which day this would end and you would require supervision from.

 

We need to know accurate numbers on Friday so we can plan staffing and catering numbers.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Clare Morgan
