The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. We have organised a basic provision for students who have been identified as needing extra support or who are the children of key workers. Thank you to those parents who have booked a place. If you have not booked a place, and require one, please call the school between 9am – 3pm on Monday 23 March.
Children are not expected to wear school uniform. The school timetable will run from 9am when students will be registered and the school day will end at 3pm. There will be no additional cover before 9am or after 3pm.
As normal catering facility will be available and your child will be able to purchase breakfast, a snack and lunch or bring in a pack lunch if they wish. If your child is entitled to free school meals lunch will be provided. The children will be expected to complete their online learning for much of the day but will also be involved in other activities including sport, so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately.
I would like to publicly thank all the staff at East Barnet School who have been able to pull together to offer this service at this challenging time.
Wishing you and your families well.
