Coronavirus School Update
Essex Primary School is open to children of Critical Workers and vulnerable children. If you fall into these categories and require educational provision for your children, please contact the school on 02084720322 or by email email@example.com. Please inform us of the dates that you would require provision so that the school can make the necessary arrangements.
Please note the Government’s advice:
Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors. Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.
Please, therefore, follow these key principles:
1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying health conditions.
4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors, and you cannot keep your child safe at home, then your children will be prioritised for education provision:

Home Learning Guidance
All children will have work set for them to continue their learning at home. The work has been set for weeks beginning: 23rd March 2020 and 30th March 2020.
Daily activities have been set for all pupils from Years 1 to 6 on Google Classroom. Pupils have received a username and password.
Pupils must complete their daily activities between the hours of 9am and 3pm so that teachers will be able to provide feedback. Please ensure they have a space to complete their work. I would like to encourage all parents to read daily with their children.
For pupils in Nursery and Reception classes, their work can be found on the school’s website: www.essex.newham.sch.uk. Please hover over the Learning tab and you will find the Homework link. Nursery and Reception pupils will not be given feedback on a daily basis but parents are expected to work through the activities daily. If you as a parent, require any support, please email the EYFS staff on: firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name and class and the teachers will get back to you during school hours.
For the two weeks of the scheduled Easter Break (6th-17th April 2020), children are expected to complete their project learning which will be uploaded to Google Classroom and the school’s website under the Learning tab and on the Homework link on Friday 3rd April 2020.
I will keep you updated regularly.
In this time of uncertainty, I would like to encourage us all to stay safe and follow the government’s advice on social distancing while at the same time supporting each other in our community.
Yours sincerely, Mrs Cecilia Mojzes
