School Open 20th March 2020 for Yrs 5, 6, 8 and 11 (1pm Close)
Oak Bank Family,
We will remain open again tomorrow for Years 11, 5, 6 & 8.
However, we will have an earlier closure time of 1pm. Taxis have been confirmed.
As you will be aware from recent Government updates, Schools will close across England from Monday. The update outlines that pupils entitled to special needs support will be able to stay in school, as will the pupils of key workers. Schools such as ours are awaiting clarification of ‘key workers’ and if this extends to teaching staff. As you can appreciate, school closures present our staff with their own child care issues.
With our current depleted workforce, families should not expect Oak Bank School to function as normal from Monday. There will be Nationwide disruption but we have plans to ensure that all year groups will have access to their school over the week. As promised, we will try our very best to work at our maximum capacity.
We will share our plans once we have confirmed teaching staff, transport and ancillary staffing to enable the site to function at the capacity we require.
I appreciate this will be a stressful and uncertain time for all carers and parents as they support their child with their home learning. Our online learning will remain in place for those self-isolating, but we hope that we can support those pupils and families that may face hardship in the coming weeks.
