School Closure Information

20/03/20

Dear Parents, 

 

As you will be aware, we are closing for the vast majority of students with effect from the end of today (Friday 20th March) until further notice in accordance with government instruction. 

 

We will remain open for pupils who have EHCPs, Local Authority Looked After Children and children of key workers whose parents are unable to keep them at home. We need to know urgently which children are likely to attend whose parents are key workers. Children who do not fall into these categories should remain at home with appropriate care.

 

The government has asked parents to follow these key principles:

 

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.

  2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.

  3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.

  4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.

 

The school is aware of pupils who are in the vulnerable bracket and will contact them individually today if we haven’t already done so.

 

In order that we can make the necessary planning for Monday morning could you please let us know if you are a critical worker and you are unable to look after your child at home and need the school to provide provision for your child from next Monday then complete this google form https://forms.gle/EoDvYgPGufsdAZvh8 as soon as possible and by 1pm Friday 20th March at the latest to support us with planning. Please check the list below thoroughly, explore childcare options and where appropriate speak to your employer before completing the form.

 

Late last night the government issued advice for parents on next steps for schools and advised parents to keep their child(ren) at home wherever possible and only use schools if there is no other option.  The full guidance can be found here (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers?utm_source=3af9bd53-8b24-49d0-92be-34d607ef773a&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate)

 

The Cabinet Office defines key workers as:

Health and social care

This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector; those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributers of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.

Education and childcare

This includes nursery and teaching staff, social workers and those specialist education professionals who must remain active during the COVID-19 response to deliver this approach.

Key public services

This includes those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, those responsible for the management of the deceased, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.

Local and national government

This only includes those administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the COVID-19 response or delivering essential public services such as the payment of benefits, including in government agencies and arms length bodies.

Food and other necessary goods

This includes those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods (for example hygienic and veterinary medicines).

Public safety and national security

This includes police and support staff, Ministry of Defence civilians, contractor and armed forces personnel (those critical to the delivery of key defence and national security outputs and essential to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic), fire and rescue service employees (including support staff), National Crime Agency staff, those maintaining border security, prison and probation staff and other national security roles, including those overseas.

Transport

This includes those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the COVID-19 response, including those working on transport systems through which supply chains pass.

Utilities, communication and financial services

This includes staff needed for essential financial services provision (including but not limited to workers in banks, building societies and financial market infrastructure), the oil, gas, electricity and water sectors (including sewerage), information technology and data infrastructure sector and primary industry supplies to continue during the COVID-19 response, as well as key staff working in the civil nuclear, chemicals, telecommunications (including but not limited to network operations, field engineering, call centre staff, IT and data infrastructure, 999 and 111 critical services), postal services and delivery, payments providers and waste disposal sectors.

If workers think they fall within the critical categories above they should confirm with their employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

If you have any questions regarding this information above then please speak to the school office this morning.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mr M Perry

Term 3

21/02/20

This term we have had a lot of different events to keep us busy as the weather has deteriorated.  Year 4 have completed an amazing production of ‘Rock Bottom’ – a fantastic effort by everybody!  KS2 choir sang at the Young Voices Concert.  They had spent the previous 5 months learning the music and although it was a long day it was definitely worth it.  Remember to like our Facebook page for the most recent news and download our app.

Christmas

16/12/19

It has been a really busy term as we have worked towards Christmas.  At the start of the term the Friends of Regis Manor held their firework display - this time to a live band.  We have again decorated our amazing tree and our hoops have been inspired by Christmas Day.  We had the privilege of helping to bury DS Smiths time capsule as well as having our Nursery, Year R and Year 1 performances.  Enjoy your Christmas break and we will see you on 6th January.

Term 1

30/09/19

September 2019

It has been a busy first month back at Regis Manor and it is hard to believe we are almost at the end of term 1!  Our newest children have joined Year R and have settled quickly into school life while our older children have continued to challenge themselves with new topics and learning.  We have had our first sports competition - cross country event – the children did a great job representing our school.  Some of our eldest children have taken on additional responsibilities from prefects and sports leaders to head boy and head girl.
