Coronavirus Management update
School Closure update: Monday 23 March 2020
Matthew Arnold School, like all schools acorss the Country, is now closed to all students except those who have already confirmed that they will be attending. Those who may attend are the children of key workers, children with EHCP, children accessing free school meals or children with an assigned social worker. Please contact the school if you have not already told us that you would like your child to be able to access this emergency provision.
We ask that all parents of these groups follow the first principle of keeping their children at home if it is at all possible and to only send them to school if there is no safe alternative. If any one in the family is showing symptoms, then students shoud not be sent to school and the family must self-isolate.
Students attending the school will be supervised as they work through the activities their timetabled teachers have set. This is emergency provision in response to government guidelines about containing the virus. We are following government guidellines in order to assist in hte National effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
We should all be reducing social contact and travel, wherever possible, and by closing the school we are making a significant contribution to that effort.
