The government have asked that parents keep their children at home, wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
On Friday we had a large number of parents requesting places, over 550 across the Trust. School leaders responded magnificently despite their concerns to plan for provision to be in place for today.
Parents/carers and our local communities have responded brilliantly to the message reiterated over the weekend – wherever possible children should be kept at home and as such these numbers have significantly reduced.
We acknowledge that for many families keeping their children at home, whilst juggling their own work commitments will have proved a real challenge.
Many thanks to all of you and the amazing school leaders and staff across the trust, we are all in this together and all need to do our bit.
