24.03.2020 – Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians, We want to reassure you that the Special School Nursing Service is still available to support you and your children during school hours whether they are at home or school. If you have any concerns or issues you wish to discuss with them please contact your child’s school and ask for a message to be passed to the school nurses. They will then contact you directly in response. Solent Special School Nursing Team
24.03.2020 – Free School Meals – if your child is entitled to free school meals we are aiming to send out supermarket vouchers to cover two weeks’ worth of meals (to cover this and next week). This will equate to £15 per week. We are not sure which supermarket this will be; I’m sorry, we cannot take preferences from you. We also apologise if the vouchers contain somewhat inappropriate messages such as congratulations, Happy Birthday etc; we will have to buy what we can get. Hope you are all well. Take care.
21.03.2020 – We hope you are keeping well. If your child has underlying health problems, which puts them in the vulnerable category, please could we ask that you do not send them in as of Monday 23rd March. This is to safeguard them first and foremost but also the rest of the school community. Thank you
