SCHOOL CLOSURE INFORMATION

 

School Closure Plan

Foxhills Junior school has now closed it's doors to all children, except those of key workers and those who need additional support (vulnerable). A full description of these categories can be found HERE.

 

School childcare is only to be used when ESSENTIAL. The clear advice is to keep children at home as much as possible to avoid them infecting or becoming infected by other children and staff.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION. 

 

All other children must remain at home with their family. Older family members should avoid caring for children.

 

To support the learning of children at home, teachers have prepared a range of learning resources and activities that have been uploaded to our school website,  accessed from the 'PARENT' tab, 'LEARNING AT HOME'.

 

We strongly encourage parents to set clear daily routines for children - a blend of learning and leisure - and, to support this, we have included suggested daily timetables/ schedules for you to use, as appropriate. Please contact us if you require further hep with this.

 

Each teacher has a special contact email address which parents can use to ask questions about the set learning and which children can send examples of learning of which they are proud. Teachers will check these email addresses at specific points during the day and will respond, accordingly.

 

Communication

We will communicate any updates to parents via,

  1. Parent Mail (text message)
  2. Email
  3. School Website – specifically this web-page

 

Email: we will be using a new and temporary email address to communicate with you:

FJSschoolclosure@foxhillsjuniorschool.co.uk.

This email address will be monitored daily, and we will endeavour to respond to any concerns you may have within a short time frame.

 

Please could parents ensure that we have the most up to date phone and email contact details.

 

We know that this will be an unsettling time for many parents, but we do wish to reassure you that we are still here for your child - do ask us for any advice or help: we will do all we can to support you.

 

Best wishes,

Mr Shore and the entire Foxhills Juniors team

What is SOCIAL DISTANCING and SELF ISOLATION?

With the coronavirus spreading throughout the world, people are being asked to take part in social distancing or self-isolation.

But what do these terms mean, and how do they differ?

 

Social distancing

Social distancing means avoiding unnecessary contact with other people and spending less time in public places, where a lot of people are around.

Everyone in the UK is now advised to follow self-distancing measures, especially

the over-70s,

pregnant women and

adults normally eligible for a flu jab.

 

When social distancing you must work from home where possible and avoid all unnecessary travel and public gatherings. You can go for a walk or run outdoors if you stay 2m (6ft) away from others, go to the shops to buy groceries, see family and friends if it's essential, walk your dog, and provide essential care for elderly residents and neighbours - if you have no symptoms.

 

Self isolation

People who show coronavirus symptoms, or live with someone who is showing symptoms, have been asked to self-isolate.

Self-isolating means staying at home and not leaving it, other than for exercise.

This means you cannot go to work, school or public areas during this time and if possible, you should not go out even to buy food or other essentials.

If you are unable to get supplies delivered, you should do what you can to limit social contact when you do leave the house.

 

Please follow this advice to keep yourself and others safer
