Coronavirus Updates

What should you do if your child is ill?

Kate Greenaway Nursery School began a partial closure on Monday 23rd March 2020. We will remain open to care for Key Workers. Below is our newsletter regarding our partial closure:

Coronavirus – Closure Letter 19.03.20 Risk Assessment: COVID-19

Here are some ideas to help you adapt to the changes in family life during lockdown:

While You’re at Home

Key Workers include those working in areas such as the NHS, Social Care, Food Services, Emergency Services etc. If either of a child’s parents / carers qualify as key workers, that child will be welcome to continue attending nursery.

During the Lockdown period, parents/carers will be spending a lot more time at home with their children. In light of this, we have put together some Home Learning resources to keep children learning and engaged while they are away from the Nursery. You can access them on our:

The Council for Disabled Children – Inboxes for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities

The Council for Disabled Children (CDC), at the Minister’s request, has launched two new email inboxes aimed to answer questions, collate resources and share information on Coronavirus and the impact on children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The new ‘CDC questions’ inbox provides the opportunity to ask questions about how coronavirus will impact on children and young people with SEND

CDCquestions@ncb.org.uk

The ‘CDC resources’ inbox, CDCresources@ncb.org.uk is designed to enable parent carers, sector professionals and practitioners to share resources, to support families of children and young people with SEND and practitioners across the disabled children’s sector. The CDC will add these resources to their COVID-19 Support and Guidance webpage, which can be found on the link below.
