***Important Information***
Whilst we continue to stay open, there is no obligation to send your young person in. We also ask that you carefully assess the risk around sending your young person to school. Government guidance is that for the vast majority: THE SAFEST PLACE IS HOME.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please take a look at our new Covid tab which will give you helpful tips and information regarding services during this time.

Also there are helpful Covid related items such as Social stories in our homework pages. Let us know if you cannot access them. Every family received a letter with pathway information and log in details. 

Thank you for responding to our request for any updated email addresses. Please do ensure we have all your correct details so that we can text message you and email you. If in doubt email them to schoolcontact@greenvaleschool.co.uk 

Greenvale remains open however, we are conducting daily risk assessments of safe staff/student ratios.  Please be aware that all of our young people have been identified as vulnerable according to government guidance. Therefore, it is important that you assess the potential risk to your son / daughter before considering sending them to school.

We are stringently assessing the health of all of our young people and will send home anybody with symptoms of ill health during this current period. You may not be asked to self-isolate according to your symptoms but you will be asked to keep your young person home until they are completely symptom free. Your son/ daughter does not have to attend school.

Government guidance states that for the vast majority the safest place is home. We are currently open but

  •          Prioritising places the children of key workers where there is no other means for their                 children to be cared for in the home setting
  •          Prioritising places for young people that are considered particularly vulnerable. We will             liaise with parents/carers and a full range of professionals; the consensus must be that             school is a safer setting than home – this would be in exceptional circumstances only
  •          Structuring the school environment to follow the strict social distancing rules                               implemented on school settings by updated government guidance. This will result in a               reduced capacity

 

We strongly advise that parents think in detail about where the best setting is that will best ensure their young persons’ safety. This should be done before communicating to the school your wish that your young person would like to return to school.

 Following a risk assessment key workers will be offered a place in accordance with their shifts and our most vulnerable young people will be offered places. These may not all be full time places. 

Please consider the risks carefully.
