To enable you to support your children during this period of school closure, the Bishop Konstant Trust IT Team have put together some information which will help you to keep your children safe online.
Be aware of scam emails
We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.
We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.
School Closure and Key Worker Notification
The Government has advised schools in England to close, except for certain groups of children, from this Friday afternoon (20st March) onwards as a further measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. No date has been set for when schools will re-open for all students.
From Monday, the school will continue to be open for Children whose parents are frontline workers – the Government has said these would include NHS staff, police and supermarket delivery drivers. However, others will be in this category and we expect to hear more from the Government on this in the coming days.
Please could you complete the Key Worker Notification, by clicking on the link below, if you think your child may fall into this category.
