Coronavirus- Information for parents (updated 01.04.20)
Ashby Hill Top Primary School is closed.
The advice from the government is to not send your children to school wherever possible in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. You will appreciate that we are running on a skeleton staff with some members of our team self-isolating. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
Schools are in a position to only provide essential childcare for some vulnerable children and those key workers whose work is critical to the Covid 19 response, have absolutely no other childcare options and whose children cannot be safely cared for at home.
If you feel that you are a critical worker and have no other options for childcare, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We may have to prioritise who we can support. This may vary on a week by week and need basis.
We aim to provide childcare at school between the hours of 8.45am and 3.25pm. (Before and after school care is now closed)
