Dear Parents/Carers,

Following the Prime Ministers briefing this afternoon we are sad to say that for the foreseeable future,  Friday will be the last day at school for the majority of our pupils.

For our children working from home, from Monday 23rd March 2020, we will be publishing English and Maths work weekly on our website at https://www.kenilworthprimary.com/coronavirus-update/ every Sunday and setting tasks online through Purple Mash.  This work will also be available to be collected from the school office every Monday, to support parents who do not have a computer or tablet.  We have also sent workbooks home for the children to complete their work in, if your child has been off and you have not yet received your workbook they can also be collected at the school office.

During this period, please use closuresupport@kenilworth.herts.sch.uk if you have any questions (including requests for purple mash log ins) this email address will be checked at least once every day.

Although it has been made clear that the safest place for all children is at home, we are aware that some key worker parents need to use our school for childcare during this period.  We have requested that parents book into this service via the parent survey we sent out last week.  For any questions regarding this provision, please email closuresupport@kenilworth.herts.sch.uk

Within the announcement, they also made it clear that their will be no tests this academic year.  We have been advised that the government will be working closely with schools, school commissioners and Ofsted to ensure that this change has no impact on our pupils future opportunities and experiences.

While we are still waiting to see if a free school meal voucher system can be implemented, we have made free school meal packed lunches that can be picked up from school each day from 12pm.  If you require one of these meals, please complete the free school meal survey that can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TC6MLGY

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your help and support during this difficult and unprecedented situation.  The Kenilworth community is the real strength of our school and we look forward to the time that we all come together again.

Kind regards,

Mrs Henson and Miss Williams

Home Learning Packs

We have released the following home learning packs to support children and parents while school is closed.

Each week, we will be uploading a grid containing 5 English and 5 Maths activities for each year group.  We will also be setting 5 tasks on Purple Mash for years 1-6.  Within the explanation letter, we have also found some links that are beneficial to each yea group and a project that can be completed during the closure period.

If you have any questions during this period, we have set up an email address that will be monitored at least once a day: closuresupport@kenilworth.herts.sch.uk
