Coronavirus - school closure update 22 March

22nd March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Thank you for your support during these unprecedented times. We appreciate that so many of you are keeping your children safe at home. Following a discussion with a nurse director who was a recent governor of our academies, this morning, I felt it important to share his message. He said that things are particularly bad in our area currently, with a high percentage of cases. He is not sending his children into school despite him and his wife being front line nurses. He urged all parents to keep their children at home as much as they possibly can. He also advised us to do lots of outdoor activity to limit spreading germs and to keep any children we have on school grounds. 

Where possible, please try and keep your children at home. It is my job to keep everyone safe, including our staff. If you feel you are unable to make arrangements for childcare and still require provision in school, please text the school mobile number 07544599454 or email deputyhead@st-peters-alton.staffs.sch.uk by 6pm this evening.

Many thanks for your support with this. 

Stay safe and keep well.

Very best wishes 

Rebecca Walker
Executive Headteacher
