03-04-2020 Letter to Parents and Carers

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you very much for the support you are giving to your children at home and to each of the Schools - Prendergast School, Prendergast Ladywell School and Prendergast Vale School. We know you have made efforts to keep your children at home to support the NHS, reduce the spread of infection and save lives.

I know you will have seen the efforts we have made to put in place an online curriculum. Thank you to everyone who has got in touch via email and over the learning portals, answered our surveys and responded to our requests for information.

We are letting you know that the Hub School provision at Prendergast Ladywell School has opened very successfully all week. The children who attend are safe, well and happily Learning. We will be keeping this provision open across the Easter holidays, including the bank holidays, to support children identified by the Government as entitled to continue to access school provision, including the children of critical workers. The Hub School is open from 8.00am until 3.00pm. Please let us know if you need to use this provision so that your children can be welcomed when they attend.

We have made contact with the national scheme for the provision of Free School Meals. We again apologise for the delay in getting this up and running. Grab bags for Free School Meals are available each day from 12.30pm at Prendergast Ladywell School Primary site. We are confident that we will have the voucher scheme up and running next week.

Please keep in touch with your school if you have any concerns using the contact email addresses. We hope you all keep safe and well over the Easter Break.
