Kettlefields has made the decision to close as of today, Thursday 19th March. We no longer have enough adults to safely staff the school and ensure staff well-being is not compromised.
We are currently awaiting more detailed information from the Department of Education as it is unclear how exactly we will be asked to support childcare for key workers and vulnerable children. As soon as I have more information I will be in touch with those specific families.
Home learning packs will be going home today with pupils and we have already started to deliver home learning packs to those that are self-isolating, and we will continue to do so over the next few days.
