As you are aware schools across Britain are CLOSED. You should ONLY send your child to school on Monday if you have to and because your work is critical to the COVID-19 response.
Whilst the Government stated that as long as one parent is a Key Worker children may if needed attend school, schools, including West Park Academy are over-whelmed by requests to attend.
Social distancing is a necessity. Attending school is a LAST RESORT. We already have too many children planning to be in school on Monday – pupils plus staff will equal almost 150. These numbers put pupils, staff and their families are risk.
Please keep your child at home if you are able. If we have too many children in school tomorrow we will begin the task of prioritising places beginning with the children of NHS workers for the remainder of the week.
We are all in this together and the health and safety of our children and staff must come first in the fight to stop the spread of the virus.
