COVID-19 contingency Plan for pupils at LZW
Dear parents/ carers,
We are creating a contingency plan for the coming weeks in the light of yesterday’s announcements about school closures and provision for pupils with EHCPs. As you can imagine this is a complex situation.
At the moment I am awaiting clarification on the “key workers” categories from the DfE and the Local Authority’s advice on provision for pupils with EHCPs, which covers our whole school population. Currently I am working to ensure that we have enough staff to operate a safe school for pupils.
However, government guidance stipulates that due to the highly contagiousness of COVID-19, people with underlying medical vulnerabilities should minimise social contact. Therefore pupils with these needs will not be in school for the foreseeable future. School will maintain contact through alternative means of which we will share in our contingency plans.
I ask that once the “key worker” list is published that you contact school as soon as possible to let us know if you are in this category.
I will email on Friday 20th March with our proposed contingency plan.
If you wish to discuss your child’s situation, please contact the school.
