HIGH PRIORITY CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Dear Parents,

 

You all need to be aware of the situation for Monday morning, 23rd March.

 

I am referring you to Liverpool City Council's instructions regarding childcare for key workers:

 

https://liverpool.gov.uk/communities-and-safety/emergency-planning/coronavirus/hubs-for-children-of-key-workers/

 

Please note:  Booker Avenue Juniors are NOT one of the childcare hubs and therefore we have been instructed to close. Our staff will be redeployed at another hub to provide support in whatever capacity we can.

 

This is vital:

If you are at all able to keep your child at home safely, you should do so.

 

Only the children of key workers who have absolutely no alternative for childcare, should attend their nearest hub.

 

My very best wishes to you all 

 

Richard Thompson

Headteacher

 

Please see the following message :

Director of Education, Steve Reddy said: “These are unprecedented times and I would like to thank all schools for their support over the last couple of days in coming up with a list of hubs.
It is really important that people understand that the Government has instructed all schools to close from Friday.
Many were already struggling to continue to provide an education for children due to the number of staff in self-isolation.
We simply can’t keep every school site open because that would not be sustainable, so what we have tried to do is come up with a list of strategically placed sites which we believe can be staffed, at least in the short term.
My appeal to parents is to only take their child to a hub if they are on the list of key workers and they have no other childcare available to them.
I want to be really honest with people: I know that the list of sites is not perfect, and that it will inconvenience some parents, but we are trying to do our very best in what are very exceptional circumstances.
I promise that we will be reviewing the situation every single day and we will let people know if we are able to open more sites, or have to make other changes.
Please keep checking our website regularly for updates and bear with us as we prioritise support for parents whose job is essential to keeping the city functioning and do not have any other available childcare.”
