Dear parents,

In light of the updated guidance from the government yesterday 16th March 2020, any family that has someone who is showing signs of coronavirus must stay at home for 14 days.

‘If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.’

Current government guidelines state that the most common symptoms of coronavirus are the recent onset of:
• new continuous cough and/or
• high temperature of 37.8 or above

Please call the office and let us know if this is the situation with your family. Any children who are off due to family self-isolation outlined above, will have their absence recorded as authorised.

We will not be sending work home if children are self-isolating as it is not logistically possible, as teachers are in school teaching their classes. The curriculum overview is on the website and that outlines the topics that the classes are covering. If the school closes, we will be providing work for all children via google classroom.

If your family is at home, there are online resources which children can access

If the libraries are closed, then you can borrow e-books from the London libraries consortium, using your Hackney Library card, they have a great children’s section.

I hope this information helps and please do get in touch if you have any questions.
We hope all our children currently not in school and their families are ok. I know that we have such a strong and special community that we will all be looking out for and after each other.

Best wishes
