'Be The Best You Can Be'

Enriching lives, making a difference.

Welcome to Cambridge Road

4th January 2021

 

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

As I am sure you are aware the PM has announced tonight that all schools must close once again. This comes as a bit of a surprise considering that only this morning he had claimed that schools were safe and must remain open. It is our duty, however, to put into effect the guidance issued to us and this letter aims to set out the procedures we are now required to follow.

 

School is open for the following two groups – vulnerable children and the children of critical workers.

Vulnerable children include those who:

  • are assessed as being in need under section 17 of the Children Act 1989, including children and young people who have a child in need plan, a child protection plan or who are a looked-after child
  • have an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • have been identified as otherwise vulnerable by educational providers or local authorities (including children’s social care services), and who could therefore benefit from continued full-time attendance, this might include:
    • children and young people on the edge of receiving support from children’s social care services or in the process of being referred to children’s services
    • adopted children or children on a special guardianship order
    • those who are young carers
    • those who may have difficulty engaging with remote education at home (for example due to a lack of devices or quiet space to study)
    • others at the provider and local authority’s discretion including pupils and students who need to attend to receive support or manage risks to their mental health

Parents whose work is critical include those outlined in the following sections:

  • essential public services, such as the payment of benefits and the certification or checking of goods for import and export (including animal products, animals, plants and food), including in government agencies and arms-length bodies

 

Food and other necessary goods - this includes those involved in food:
