"Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger."

You will have seen the announcement on 22nd March from the Prime Minister announcing three new measures to reduce the spread of infection:
1) Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes:
a. Shopping for basis necessities such as food and medicine
b. One form of exercise a day
c. Any medical need, or to provide care to help a vulnerable person
d. Travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely cannot be done from home
2) Closing non-essential shops and community spaces
3) Stopping gatherings of more than two people in public
Guidance was updated overnight in light of this: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others
• Pupils should attend school unless they feel unwell or someone else in the house where they live feels unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (new continuous cough, high temperature, flu-like symptoms). In these instances:
• If your child is unwell or needing to self-isolate, report this as you would normally by emailing email@example.com or ringing the absence line before 8.45am on 01242 513659.
If you are in Self-Isolation while school is still open please do the below:
We are thinking of contingency plans and what we can do to help pupils continue learning at home if our current situation changes and the government ask schools to close. Your child has gone home with a letter, where you will have information on how to login to Class Dojo .
Please note that this can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop computer or a mobile device (via app).
Class Dojo will help teachers to share work/tasks on a daily basis. We will send out more details about how this will work in the coming days. At this stage, you are only expecting you to login for each of your children. Please do not comment or upload anything on there at this stage.
Please don't forget to visit our Learning at Home page where we have lots of useful information and resources!
