Dear Parents and Carers,
As per the government guidelines announced by the Prime Minister, North Mead Primary Academy will now close to the majority of children until we are informed otherwise. At this point, closure will be up to the February half term, but this could change and we will inform all families as we know more. We communicate with families using Class Dojo and email. If you are not receiving messages, or are not connected to Class Dojo, please call our school office on 0116 2767761 between the hours of 8am & 3:30pm. We must have a working email address and telephone number for all our children.
School is open for children of key workers and vulnerable children between the hours of 8:30 and 3:00pm. The kitchen is open as normal with hot packed lunches available. Children attending school should wear school uniform as normal and bring a warm coat and water bottle.
All children working at home are required to engage in home learning. Nearly all families who have requested to borrow a school device now have one – please make sure that children from Reception – Year 6 log onto Teams for their live sessions at the times requested by their teacher. Teachers will communicate updates and information through Class Dojo. Parents are welcome to contact teachers through Class Dojo, and they will do their best to respond as soon as possible. Please note that they are teaching all day, so instant replies are not possible.
If you have any safeguarding concerns, there is a Designated Safeguarding Lead available during 8:30am & 3pm, Monday to Friday (0116 2767761). If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child outside of school hours, please call Social Care on 0116 4541004 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000. If you have urgent concerns about the safety of a child, please call 999. Concerns can also be sent to school via our email address [email protected]. The email address is monitored regularly.
Thank you for your support during this challenging time,
