WORKING TOGETHER WITH OUR PARENTS/CARERS TO FIGHT THE CORONA VIRUS.
Critical Workers and School Closures
If you are a Critical Worker parent on our school’s list drawn up on March 20th 2020 in response to our parents, and your circumstances have since changed where you are now in a situation where you cannot keep your child safe at home whilst you work, we can look to support you in securing a ‘care’ facility. St. Rose is closed due to the number of our critical working parents confirming on Monday 23rd March that they are meeting the government’s guidance of keeping their child/ren safe at home until the government officially opens all schools.
Guidance on gov.uk ‘If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible,...’ Should a registered key worker of a St Rose pupil now need an emergency cover please email firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 48 hours notice so that we can work to locate a place for you.
Current COV19 DfE Government Guidance
As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing.
And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
We are, of course, worried that the closure of our school could affect the childrens' spiritual life, education, health and well-being.
So... here are some videos to help you relax, meditate and even sleep and a list of websites that have great resources for you and your child/children to make the very best use of their time.
We have also included some fun exercise videos for you and the children to have a go at... being as healthy and active as we can is one way of making sure our immune system is working at its very best.
