Covid 19 - Key workers update
Merchants’ Academy Primary and Secondary will be open from 8.30am to 2.30pm for all vulnerable and key worker students as outlined by the Government. Primary students should report and register at the Primary site for 8.30 and will remain at Primary for the morning, Y2 – Y6 students will then be walked to Secondary to have their lunch and attend a PE session each afternoon. Therefore, can we please ask that these students are collected from the secondary site at 2.30pm. Please note that Nursery, Reception and Year 1 students will finish at 2.20pm to allow parents to get to Secondary, if necessary.
Students should attend in full school uniform and bring in PE Kit for the afternoon session.
The clear message from government is:
“YOU SHOULD ONLY SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL IF YOU HAVE TO, BECAUSE YOUR WORK IS CRITICAL TO OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME YOU SHOULD”
Do not use this service unless your work is critical to the COVID-19 response. We need to make sure we can provide a service for critical workers. We also need to ensure that we do not have large numbers of children together that puts them, and our staff, at risk.
