We are continuing to follow advice from Public Health England in respect of Coronavirus.
As instructed by the Government the school will be closed from Friday 20th March until further notice apart from for children of key workers and vulnerable children, with Year 1 children from Monday 8th June. For all other children the Government has stated that from Monday 23rd March 2020 they must not attend school until further notice. We will update all parents as we are advised if the situation changes.
We are working closely with the Local Authority and if we are advised differently by Public Health England and the Department for Education to close entirely, we will inform parents and carers immediately.
The safety of our children and all the staff is our highest priority. We have followed government guidance, putting in place many safety measures as per our detailed risk assessments to ensure that the school is safe for some children to return.
The health and safety of our Giffards community will always be our priority and to this end we will be accepting more key worker and vulnerable children from Wednesday 3rd June and then Year 1 children from Monday 8th June. If you are in one of the groups of families we are accepting and require a place for your child but have not yet let us know please contact us as a matter of urgency.
