School attendance during lockdown
Dear Parents and Carers,
I thought you may appreciate clarity around schooling from today, Thursday 5th November, when the national lockdown begins. The Government’s senior clinicians still advise that school is the best place for children to be.
Therefore, there are no changes to the expectations of school attendance. Until further notice schools are open as usual and it remains compulsory for children to attend school. Please refer to our ‘School attendance letter’ sent home last half-term. A copy can be found on our website. https://www.stleonards.devon.sch.uk/parent-letters/
Our afterschool and breakfast clubs will be operating as usual.
As always, please follow our guidelines if your child, or a member of your household, develop Covid-19 symptoms. If your child is unable to attend school, please call the office on 01392 666570 by 8.30am and leave a detailed message of your child’s absence. Our procedures for the start and end of day are remaining the same, as part of our overall school risk-assessment.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Mrs E Slaven Headteacher
St Leonard’s C of E Primary School
