Friarage Community Primary School

Friday 27th March 4.30pm

As we reach the end of the first week of the school closure, we would like to say a big thank you to staff and families of Friarage school for being so supportive during this unknown time.

School continues to remain closed next week.

There is still no further information or government guidance for the free school meals.

Next week we are reducing the expectation for you to collect grab bags daily, therefore on Monday 30th March, a weeks worth of lunches will be available for collection from the school gates 10.30 – 11.15 for those entitled to free school meals.

Any problems or questions, please ring school 374244 between 9am and 3pm or email admin@friarage.n-yorks.sch.uk

For children in years 3-6, there are now class v class challenges on T T Rockstars which will run for a week and new challenges will be set each Friday.

On Monday we will be sharing new learning tasks for all year groups.

Thank you for all your positive messages and thoughts throughout this uncertain time.

Stay safe.

Thank you to everyone for

Wednesday 25th March 4.00pm

School remains closed

Thank you to you all for continuing to follow the guidance.

The government’s guidance to schools states that ‘If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.’ The aim in this is clearly to minimise the spread of infection, which is the civic duty of us all. They state ‘the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.‘

Updates will be posted here and on Twitter as and when we receive them.

We are very grateful to staff and keyworkers in the community who are doing all they can to fight the virus.

#Togetherwecan applies to everyone in the Friarage community.

Thank you

Dear Parent/Carer

As you are aware, Friarage School will close to pupils/students today, Friday 20th March, along with all other schools in England as instructed by the government. It will however, remain open for the children of critical workers and those that are deemed to be vulnerable.

The definitions of what constitutes being a critical worker or a vulnerable child has been set by the government and is

published on our web-site separate to this letter under latest government guidance. It is important that you read this as it also contains advice regarding child care arrangements aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 to others, particularly to the elderly. There is a second government document on the list which answers some frequently asked questions by parents and you may find it useful too.

The government’s guidance to schools states that If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.’ The aim in this is clearly to minimise the spread of infection, which is the civic duty of us all. They state ‘the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.‘ 

In the light of this government guidance, please carefully consider whether school is the best place for your child to be, irrespective of whether you are a critical worker. If you are a critical worker and believe you have no choice but to send your child to school or your child is vulnerable, please send them to school at the 8.45am on Monday 23rd March 2020. From Monday 23rd March, breakfast club will not be available.  Please also note that if your child uses transport provided by the local authority, it will continue to be provided as will school dinners, with a breakfast available after 8.45am.

For youngsters in receipt of free school meals who are not in school, vouchers will be sent to you in the coming days to replace this in school provision. In the meantime school will be providing a grab and go bag. Details of this will be available on the school website and via twitter.

School will contact you today, if they have not already done so, to find out if your son/daughter is to attend school.

Finally, as an educator committed to the welfare of children, I am implementing these measures that will cater for only a proportion of our children with a heavy heart. However, I acknowledge and support the government’s rationale in making these drastic changes to school provision given the unprecedented nature of the challenge our society currently faces. Please also note that we will continue to update our remote learning provision for all pupils/students as the weeks pass.

Yours sincerely

Cheryl Cappleman

Welcome to Friarage Community Primary School’s website

Welcome to Friarage Community Primary School.  I am proud to be the head teacher at such a vibrant and happy school.
