Daily Update - 11th May

If you saw or read about the announcement from the Prime Minister last night, you were probably full of questions this morning, as I'm afraid were all school staff and governors (and similarly it would seem the Department for Education!) Unfortunately the government has a habit of making press announcements before they actually tell the people who have to implement the decisions so we don't know any more than you. Today we have had some further advice issued (I had the email from the DfE at 8.23pm!), which you can read here:


You will see that starting to open for more children from 1st June is still only a possibility and only if the government's 5 tests are met. Over the next few weeks, we will working with the Local Authority and the Diocese to see how this might work in Southampton schools and we will keep you updated.

As it stands at the moment, schools are still only open for children of critical workers who have no alternative childcare arrangements, but with more people going back to work this week, if you think you will fall into this category, please contact us and let us know: 07712097633 or info@st-patricks.southampton.sch.uk

We hope you enjoyed Mrs Claridge's pirate impressions for our last story! Tomorrow, Mrs Ames makes her debut with a rather cheeky story that the children will definitely enjoy.
