COVID-19 UPDATE: SCHOOL CLOSURES

Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, schools in England have been directed to close until further notice from the end of the school day on Friday 20th March.

All lessons will move online to the Google Classroom platform from Monday morning. Resources for all classes will be available each day from 9am and we urge all parents and carers to structure their children’s day to include learning periods throughout each weekday. We would also recommend regular music practice and reading each day.

Schools have been asked to remain open where needed to support key workers who do not have alternate childcare options in remaining at work. All parents have been sent an email regarding this arrangement, requesting that parents who work in certain areas notify us as soon as possible so that we can organise structured activity programmes for applicable children.

We have also been asked to remain open for Looked After and EHCP children. These families will be contacted personally by a member of the SEN team.

We wish all TIFS families well at this challenging and unprecedented time.
