Dear Parents and Carers within the XP Schools Trust,
As you are well aware the Corona virus (Covid 19) situation is escalating as we speak. The leaders within the XP School Trust would like to share our plans for dealing with this difficult situation.
Firstly we continue to monitor and receive daily updates from the government and continue to follow their advice. The five Schools within the Trust have made their plans in case the government instructs us to close or partially close. In the event of any closures, partial or full, we will use our official websites and social media stations to inform parents. We will also message via our text to parents service. We will remain open until the government instructs us otherwise.
In schools we have held assemblies / community Meetings to explain the situation to students and have posters around school regarding how to wash hands thoroughly. We have also had discussions in Crew on a daily basis to remind students about hygiene. In all Schools we have made provision for additional hand sanitiser to be made available and will request additional cleaning in our IT areas, ensuring keyboards are regularly wiped clean throughout the day.
We will be monitoring all Field Work plans and making a decision on a case by case basis, following LA and government advice. The Teachers and Leaders within the Trust are currently making plans for how they will provide learning opportunities and communication with their classes, if the government does instruct a partial or full closure.
Until we hear different, the schools within the XP Trust will remain open and continue to deliver great learning for all our students and will keep you all updated via websites and social media if anything changes.
This information will also be emailed and sent as a text to all parents on our system this evening – please update your information at the school office if you have not received it. I encourage you to subscribe to the school website so you receive the most up to date blog posts – this will be where the most up to date information will be given. (available at the bottom right of the front page).
Thank you for your support
The XP Schools Trust Executive Team
