Ratby Primary School will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The school site will only be open from Monday 23rd March for pupils of Key Workers and Vulnerable Pupils.

Please note we will not be operating as a ‘school’ and will not be providing a fully educational curriculum – we will, of course, be exercising a common sense approach and will try to ensure children are safe and engaged in age-appropriate activities.

Principles we will ask you to follow:

  • If at all possible, including children of Key Workers, children should be kept at home for social distancing.
  • Parents should do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing in a way which can continue to spread the virus, that is why the Government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and ask schools to remain ONLY for those pupils who absolutely need to attend.
  • Everyone should continue to follow Public Health England guidelines and only send pupils into school if they are healthy, they do not need to self-isolate and have not been with anyone presenting with any symptoms.
  • Please keep us informed of any self-isolation or cases or Covid-19 within the family or via any direct contact.
  • Only use the service if absolutely required – for example we would ask part-time key workers not to use the service on days when they are not working.
  • If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then school provision will be available for them, if absolutely needed.
  • We are completely committed to keeping this service open as long as possible
