Following the announcement by the Prime Minister this evening that schools will be closed from Friday until further notice, I would like to provide some additional clarity for parents of Darwen Vale High School students. We are open as normal on Thursday 19th March and Friday 20th March. Attendance for these days is particularly important given that we will be distributing printed work packs and instructions for online learning. We will also be providing details for parents and students of how we will remain in contact with you during this enforced closure. To reiterate, school will close at 3:15pm on Friday 20th March. As per the announcement, children who carry EHCP status, children who are subject to a child protection plan and children whose parents are employed in “key worker” roles, emergency services or the NHS will be provided for. We will be contacting parents asking for further information around this.
Whilst we appreciate that this news will be extremely worrying, we will endeavour to communicate effectively through the website and other channels to keep parents updated regularly. Should you require further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
