***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,

Following  Government guidance, 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 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.

 

Should the situation change in school we may be forced to suspend some classes or restrict numbers. We therefore need to identify those families who have either one or two parents working in critical sectors. Some parents working in the critical sectors will be able to arrange for their young person to be cared for safely at home and you should do so if you can. We recognise that this will not always be possible. Please remember that you should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be stringent about social distancing such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.

 

The full guidance for critical workers can be found at:

Some of you have already let us know that you are a critical worker. Please check and let us know using the attached slip if you think you are classed as a critical worker.

If you are a critical worker, you are needed to keep essential services going and we thank you for all the hard work you are doing.

 

Stay well and take care.

Kind regards

 

Lynne Haines
