Dear Parents & Carers
Well, what interesting times!
As instructed by the government, William Lilley Infant & Nursery School will close at the end of tomorrow until further notice. The latest information is that schools could be shut ‘…for some time’. So who knows when everyone will be back together.
Schools have also been instructed to provide emergency childcare for the ‘most vulnerable’ and for children of ‘front line workers’. We are now working out how to make this happen.
Like all schools, we’re waiting for further guidance from the DFE. However, at this moment in time we know that:
Vulnerable pupils are those who:
Front Line workers include:
We expect the list of front line workers to be expanded and clarified over the next 24 hours.
PLEASE HELP US NOW
If your child is ‘vulnerable’ as described above
and/or you believe that you are a front line worker
and you want to take up the emergency child care provision
at William Lilley
PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO TELL US NOW
…no later than 10.00am on Friday 20 March
As soon as we have an idea of how many children we are expecting, we can plan to make it happen
Please let us know if you want to take up this offer by:
Calling the school office on 0115 917 9277
Emailing school at firstname.lastname@example.org
By popping into the school office to tell us
We will send you updates as soon as we have them
