School closure – awaiting further directives and guidance

You will no doubt be aware of the Prime Minister’s announcement that schools are closing on Friday 20th March due to COVID-19 but that there are exceptions for some groups of children.

I know that parents will want clarity on this and that you will be awaiting further information from Rushy Meadow about the arrangements. However, at the time of writing this blog, all schools are awaiting directives and further guidance about the logistics of keeping the school open and who this will be for.

Please be advised that when announcements are made to the country, schools hear these at the same time as you – we do not have any information in advance.

I understand that this is an extremely concerning situation for us all. We will do all we can to support the Rushy Meadow community but do ask that parents bear with us as we work through a whole host of discussions, decisions and tasks – we are all in uncharted territory.

Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.
