COVID19: XP School Trust Support for Critical Workers

XP Schools have a moral imperative to keep our schools open and play our part in the fight against Covid 19.

If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors listed, and you cannot keep your child safe at home, then your children will be prioritised for education provision.

That education provision is at XP School; XP, XP East, Green Top, Plover, Norton Infant School and Norton Junior School.

If you are unsure and want to discuss anything, call your school and a staff member will talk you through your questions.

We are here to help you.

Covid-19, Information from The XP Trust

Good Evening,

After the UK Government’s announcement tonight we would like to update and clarify our plans on the Coronavirus situation, as from (today) 18th March 2020.

Plover will remain open until Friday for all children.

We confirm that we will continue to support our school community by:

  • Keeping our schools open for the children whose parents work as ‘key workers’, defined by the Government currently as NHS staff, Police and Delivery Drivers (We will clarify further once we have more information from the Department For Education and Local Authority regarding this)
  • Opening the schools for children who have a Social Worker and/or Education, Health and Care Plans
  • Ensuring children who receive Free School Meals will be able to access the schools to collect a free Meal provided by the school  (further details to follow from the schools themselves)

For children who have been asked to stay at home by the UK Government, we can confirm that:

  • Our curriculum is in the process of being available online for all children to access at home
  • Every school in the Trust will send details by the end of the week, on how everyone can access these resources
  • Every school in the Trust will have plans in place to touch base with their children throughout the closure period, they will communicate this to you

For those parents whose children will continue to come to school on Monday 23rd March, please could you support the schools by ensuring:

  • Your children wash their hands before they come to school and when then get home
  • You keep the communication between home and schools open via email, websites and phone calls
  • Follow the government guidance on household self isolation

Schools will continue to send out updates where the situation changes and for your reassurance and information.

As always the usual lines of communication to schools will be open if you have any specific concerns related to your child or circumstances.

Thank you for your support at this time,

Everyone at The XP Trust

Covid-19 Update

Today, we need to go further, because according to SAGE [the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies] it looks as though we’re now approaching the fast growth part of the upward curve.

Without drastic action, cases could double every 5 or 6 days.

So, first, we need to ask you to ensure that if you or anyone in your household has one of the two symptoms (a high temperature or a new and continuous cough), then you should stay at home for fourteen days.

That means that if possible you should not go out even to buy food or essentials, other than for exercise, and in that case at a safe distance from others. If necessary, you should ask for help from others for your daily necessities. And if that is not possible, then you should do what you can to limit your social contact when you leave the house to get supplies.

Thank you for your continued support at this uncertain time.

Mrs Ogle, Mr Butler and the Executive Team of the XP Trust

Crew shout out winners!

A huge well done to the children who received a crew shout out yesterday for either their spelling scores, arithmetic scores,  the amount of times they’ve read at home, their time on frog learning and read theory or for following the Plover pledge abs being super stars! It’s great to see so many new faces and they are all so proud of themselves! Keep it up 5/6!
