Message to parents/carers – 22.3.2020:
Please do NOT send your child to school on Monday 23rd March and beyond unless you have received confirmation email from the school. Please note that the school building and grounds will NOT BE OPEN to any other children or visitors (unless pre-arranged). It is critical that we take every measure possible to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect the children in our care and the staff who will continue to work.


Message from Gavin Williamson, Education Secretary – 22.3.2020:
‘You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.

 
If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.’

Message to parents/carers 19.3.2020
Dear Parent/Carer. Following the Government announcement, we now need to start working out who can attend school next week. Initially please contact info@cockburnschool.org if you work in any capacity in the NHS, Police Service or Social Care and you intend to send your child to school next week. Thank you.


Message to parents/carers 19.3.2020
Dear Parents/Carers. We are currently awaiting further notice from the Government regarding how we plan for the closure of school and remaining open for the most vulnerable and key workers children. As soon as we have this guidance we will update you. We are extremely grateful for all of your support at this difficult time.
Mr D Gurney, Executive Headteacher
