Coronavirus Update 30/03/2020
There are no significant updates today but I would like to confirm the arrangements for the Easter holidays. The school will remain operational for those children who have parents who are ‘critical’ workers only. I will be contacting parents Tuesday to offer places. If I have not contacted you by the end of Tuesday, and you feel you meet the criteria of ‘critical worker’, please call me at the school to discuss a placement. The school will be open from 9.10am – 3pm. If you rely on transport, please contact your transport company to ensure they are still able to offer this service. I appreciate those members of staff who have volunteered to give up parts of their Easter holidays to support the school. We did have a staff training day scheduled for the 20th April but I have cancelled this. The school will therefore be open from the 20th April.
We do seem to be entering a more settled period of time, in the context of where we are! To this end, if there are no significant updates, I will move away from the daily updates but will ‘touch bases’ with you at least once a week. I am available all week at school and Jenny is available Monday – Wednesday if you wanted to talk anything through in more detail.
We are hopefully making contact with all of you this week and Carol and Charlotte are busy with plans looking at what additional support may be helpful at home.
In the meantime, I hope you and your families are all keeping safe.
At Southview School we believe that we achieve the best outcomes for our students if we work collaboratively with parents/carers and other agencies.
Before joining the school we encourage you to visit the school and for your son or daughter to spend as much time with us as they need to feel comfortable and secure at school.
As well as the more structured meeting to discuss progress, we encourage all our parents/carers to use the ‘home school book’ which is an invaluable way of passing on information between us – it also gives us a good opportunity to tell you about the day and celebrate any achievements!
We strive to create an open and relaxed line of communication with you and I or any member of the team would be happy to discuss any aspects of your child’s education with you.
