Coronavirus - update 30th March 2020 
St Andrew's is remaining open this week for children of keyworkers and vulnerable children as defined by the Government. 
Please note that guidance states you should do everything you can to keep your child at home where they will be safest. 
ONLY SEND YOUR CHILD INTO SCHOOL WHEN YOU HAVE NO OTHER OPTION. 
Please e mail Mrs Lorkins if you require places this week as we are now operating on a skeleton staff.  We are also asking parents to let us know if they require child-care during the Easter holidays.  This provision is for children of keyworkers only and the same guidance applies - keep your children at home if at all possible. 
If you think you fall into a critical (keyworker) category, you should confirm with your employer that your specific role is essential for the continuation of their operations during this time.  We may ask you to provide evidence to verify your critical (keyworker) status.
