Blofield Primary School is closed due to the coronavirus outbreak until the Government instructs them to re-open. It is not safe for school to be open. The virus is rapidly spreading and the number of deaths is increasing daily.
Please protect our NHS and other front-line workers. Children with an emergency care space should only attend if absolutely necessary as their parent/carer has a vital role in the fight against the coronavirus.
If the infection is passed on by a child attending the emergency care sessions, we would be forced to close the provision, leaving hospitals and other key services understaffed. If staff have to self isolate or become ill and we cannot safely supervise children, we will have to close this service.
You may need these staff. They may be the difference for you or a family member between life and death. Think carefully about using an allocated emergency key worker place for your child. Please stay inside and keep children home and safe. The safest place for your child is at home.
If you child has an underlying medical condition, including asthma, the guidance says they should stay away from others for 12 weeks. It would not be sensible to send them into school or another provision as they are at an even more serious risk if the catch the virus.
Everyone should be socially isolating unless it is essential to leave the house. Please do not let your children go out to meet friends or go to the park etc. We can only stop the spread if people follow all of the guidance.
Please take all recommended precautions. We want to keep our community safe and protected.
