Dear parents and carers,
As you are no doubt aware, due to the current coronavirus situation the government is trying to stem the spread of infection by closing schools.
St Edward's will be closed to the VAST majority of students from the 23rd of March until further notice. We must ask that you keep your children at home if it is anyway possible. The school will only be open to the children of keyworkers who are not able to be cared for by other relatives.
We fully understand and appreciate the inconvenience and impact this will have on families but if we are to work together to stop coronavirus quickly then we must abide by this quarantine as strictly as possible.
We sincerely hope you understand the stance we have to take on this situation and we very much believe if we are all careful and follow the guidelines it will enable our school and parish to be back to normal as soon as possible.
If you are in a situation where you believe your children will need to come to school then please fill in the questionnaire on the school website by 3PM so we can start to get things prepared. Again we thank you for your cooperation and will stay in touch with updates.
Be safe, be well, be kind.
