Coronavirus Update 19th March 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

As I am sure you are now aware, St John Fisher will be closed from 3:00pm on Friday for the vast majority of students.  The school will remain open for the following:

  1. Vulnerable students – defined as  students who have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) and students who have a social worker assigned to them
  2. Children of parents or carers who are defined as “Key Workers”.

We are still awaiting the official list of what occupations fall within the Key Worker category, but have in the past included Health workers, Police, Firefighters, Teachers, Prison Officers and will also include Delivery Drivers.

In order for us to assess provision for Monday onward we need to know not only how many of our students fall within this category but also how many parents and carers who fall into this category will choose to send their children into school.

In order to help us with this we are asking that you complete a simple online form.  On the form we will be asking what occupation you currently doing.  Please identify whether one or both parents/carers are key workers.  Completing this form will aid us enormously in ensuring that we can provide the correct provision for next week and the weeks ahead.

Yours Sincerely,

Mark Stevens
Assistant Headteacher
