Corona Virus Update - 30 June 2020: The government is keeping schools advised about this virus. Holy Cross School is following the advice of the relevant authorities.
On Thursday 2nd July schools in Leicester have been advised to remain open for children of key workers and more vulnerable children only. This means that other children who have gradually been returning may need to stay home once more, and home learning will continue. Work will be provided on Seesaw, as before with class teachers setting work for the children each day. Learning packs can also be provided for those who do not have the technology to operate Seesaw.
If your child was on the key worker/ vulnerable list before, they will still be able to come to school. If you would like your child to be added to the key worker list, or you feel that your child is vulnerable in any way and needs to come to school, for example, due to their mental health (or family mental health) needs, please contact Ms Neill and she will do her best to make sure your child has a school place. This will be subject to staffing levels but we expect to be able to accommodate all the children who need to come to school easily and very safely.
The school has a very comprehensive risk assessment in place, and strong measures for maintaining social bubbles, hand washing, additional cleaning, and so on.
If you have any concerns at all about the well-being of your child (or family) please contact the school 0116 283 3135 and we will help you. WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU.
