Parents Letter 23.03.20

Dear Parents and Carers

I am writing to update you on where we are on this first day of national school closures. We are open for the children of key workers; children are taken by bus to Rydon school where they are supported by Christow staff. Thank you to those workers for responding to our request for notification of whether you need to send your children to school so that we could make appropriate plans.

Contacting school

We need to do all we can to support social distancing.

To this end, reception is no longer being physically staffed in the school but please email

Please also refer to the school website for additional information.

Trips and visits

We have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel all trips and visits planned for the rest of this academic year. We appreciate that many of our families will be worried about their finances at the moment, and so ESW have decided that any risk lies with us as an organisation rather than parents. We will refund any payments that you have already made as soon as we possibly can.

Completion of work

Teachers are setting work whilst the school is closed. Please continue to use the link to find your home learning on this link:

Christow Home Learning

These are unprecedented times for us all. We will continue to do all we can to support you and your children, and please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of any help,

Yours sincerely,

Elise Redman
