COVID-19 UPDATE - SCHOOL CLOSURE

***UPDATE 27 MARCH 2020***

We would like to say a massive thank you to all the Children, Parents, Carers, Staff, Volunteers and Governors of Bellefield School for coming together in this time of crisis. The school is strange place without everyone in it but the team are rallying together and ensuring we can provide a safe place for the children who need our care. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to all of those at home and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. 

Please keep checking the website regularly for updates on home learning in the Curriculum section of the website. You will also be contacted through ParentMail for changes after Easter. 

For those children entitled to Free School Meals, please check ParentMail for communications sent out in respect of your vouchers. Please contact the School Office on 01225 753530 if you have any issues. Please note that these vouchers are for low income family children eligible for Free School Meals, this is different to Universal Free School Meals which entitles all children up to Year 2 to school dinners.


 

In line with Government advice the school will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 to all children except those who have parents who classify as key workers or to children who have a high level of vulnerability. Please click HERE for a copy of the letter sent to parents and carers on 19th March 2020. Please log onto ParentMail and go to Forms to complete the hour requirement form if you are a Critical Key Worker and require child care to be provided by the school in the coming weeks. A copy of the letter sent to Parents in respect of this can be found HERE.

During the school closure and periods of self-isolation, the school will be providing guidance on what your children can be learning from home. Please enter the full website and select 'Curriculum' from the top window bar and choose the appropriate class.

As of 17th March 2020, each child will be supplied with spare books from school should the school have to close. If your child is in a Reception class, they will receive a lined book. If they are in Year 1 to Year 6 they will receive both a lined book and a squared paper book. These books can be used to record home learning if you are self-isolating or the school closes. 

If you are currently self isolating but you have someone available to collect these books on your behalf, please let us know on 01225 753530 and we can arrange for the books to be ready for collection from Reception.
