We are committed as a school to supporting the national effort to ensure key workers can continue to do their jobs. At the same time, we need to balance this with the need to reduce social contact. The reason behind the Government’s decision to close schools was to stop the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
IF CHILDREN CAN STAY SAFELY AT HOME, THEY SHOULD DO SO TO LIMIT THE CHANCE OF THE VIRUS SPREADING.
The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk and death rate across the country will be. The school’s stance is for children to stay at home wherever possible until we beat this pandemic. THE SCHOOL WILL REMAIN OPEN ONLY FOR THOSE CHILDREN THAT ABSOLUTELY NEED TO ATTEND.
First and foremost, however, the school’s view is that children should stay at home if at all possible.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace, is the Queen's representative in our county.
Sir John is leading an initiative in Nottinghamshire to thank every child and young person in our county, for doing their bit in the fight against the coronavirus.
Sir John wants children to understand that their efforts are valued and are critical to helping the country to stay safe.
The initiative, supported by a range of local services as well as the county council, will mean that each child and young person will get a personal certificate achievement.
Watch Sir John's message, including thank yous from doctors, teachers, paramedics, police officers, fire fighters and NHS volunteers below.
Your child's certificate will be put on their Dojo portfolio. If you do not access Dojo, then you can either sign up, or the certificate will be posted to you
