Message from Calderdale Council: Remember, you should only be leaving your home if you’re shopping for basic necessities, for one form of exercise per day, for any medical need or if you’re travelling to/from work. Please take responsibility and keep children at home.’
Although we remain open for a small number of key worker and vulnerable children, not as an educational setting but as a safe space with a very skeleton staff, we would like to direct you to this advice from the Education Secretary on behalf of the Government.
You should only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.
If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. #StayHomeSaveLives
In the highly unlikely event of our school having to close due to COVID-19, we have emergency arrangements in place with local schools including Whitehill, Ash Green and Moorside. If this ever needed to be actioned, we would provide all necessary contact information as appropriate.
