Information During COVID-19
All schools within The Bath & Mendip Partnership Trust are following advice received from the Department for Public Health and the Department for Education. We are open to keyworker and vulnerable children, as we have been every week since the closure of educational establishments.
This week we have invited Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils back into school. We continue to monitor and adhere to regular guidelines and directives received from both Department for Public Health and the Department for Education.
Staff are keeping in regular contact with families using the school’s Class Dojo platform. Contact includes the setting of work and a range of engaging challenges to support home learning.
Staff are committed to playing an active role in the national campaign to halt the spread of coronavirus. This includes working from home where possible and providing weekday childcare from 7.45am – 6.00pm where this is required by critical workers to enable them to complete their essential work. If you require a childcare place, please request this by sending an email to the school office email@example.com providing a minimum of 24 hours notice and stating the dates and times that childcare is needed.
