Dear Parent/Carer

Wordsworth School Care

We continue to provide care for our essential key worker families and are averaging 6 staff and 8 children in school even though we have 65 children registered. It is clear from conversations with many parents who chose not to send in children that they are doing everything they can to comply with the Governments direction to wherever possible make provision for keeping children at home by rearranging shifts, working from home and with older siblings taking some care responsibility and other family solutions.

We would ask you to carefully review and reconsider your requirement to bring your child to school as we cannot avoid social mixing in our school setting involving many children and staff all from different homes and with parents doing a variety of jobs, very many in healthcare. By definition therefore, our provision is not as safe as your child being at home with you or a member of your family. So any additional provision you can make, even on a daily basis, would help reduce social interaction in society and so reduce the spread of this virus to the benefit of our community.

We will of course remain open for as long as we can to fulfil our role for critical workers and vulnerable children but would ask you to carefully reflect on the Governments key principle which is …  ‘If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be’.

Easter holidays

Team Spirit will be providing a care provision over the Easter holidays and those eligible would have received a letter with guidance. 

Thank you. Stay safe.
