I thought it important to update you on our situation in light of the challenges we are all facing. Currently nursery is open on a skeleton basis for front line key workers only. It is difficult to assess how long we will remain open, but we are doing everything in our power to support the stoic fight against Coronavirus.
Following last night’s government announcement, Boris Johnson has declared a complete lockdown of the UK, instructing people not to leave their homes or meet in groups of more than two people. This is to further enforce social distancing measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

With this in mind, you must only send your child to Nursery if it is absolutely essential. It is important that no child or member of staff should come to Nursery that has not been scheduled to do so.

Children that are due to attend must only do so where no safe alternative is available. We strongly encourage parents to make alternative arrangements where possible to reduce contact with people outside of the family home and risk spreading the virus.

We all need to play our part to keep ourselves and each other safe and help reduce the strain on our local NHS services.
Thank you for your support and understanding so far, as our services run on a “needs must” basis, for quite some time to come. Please keep an eye on our website for any updates and information on changes that may occur and try not to contact nursery except for matters of urgency. In the meantime keep safe and indoors so that we can defeat this unwelcome predator and send it packing as Mr Johnson intends.

Yours sincerely

Peter Gerrard
Executive Headteacher
