PE Bags as of Tuesday 24th March

Any PE bags belonging to children who are not attending school and did not get collected yesterday, will remain in school until school fully re-opens. We would ask parents not to call into school to collect these.

Scam Emails

24th March 2020

It’s not taken long for the scammers to start, please see below and take all precautions necessary – The DfE have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following:

‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.

DfE have confirmed that this is a scam email and is not official.  Please do not give your bank details out.

Home Learning

23rd March 2020

If you are unable to access, some of the resources school has put together do not worry. There is no statutory obligation for children to complete work at home. Emergency legislation has lifted the curriculum requirements for schools. We do not wish to add additional anxiety to families at this difficult time. The DfE and school is exploring ways to support parents of those children not in school at this time. In the meantime, please be patient and keep safe.

Key Worker Information

20th March 2020

Parents

Thank you to everyone who has returned their key worker information form to school. I can confirm that your child will be able to attend school on the days you’ve specified, unless we have contacted you individually to inform you otherwise.

If your child is attending school, we are happy for you to drop off late or collect early as required.

We have just been advised that all children attending school on Monday will be entitled to a school dinner in the form of a ‘grab bag’, which will contain a sandwich, cake, fruit and a drink. This ‘grab bag’ must be ordered before 10.00 a.m. each day, please email school acolgan@st-vincents.rochdale.sch.uk to advise accordingly.

Regards

Mr. S. Callaghan
