COVID-19 Update - 6 April 2020

Online Learning

We hope that you are all keeping well and the children are enjoying SeeSaw.  Some of the activities they have been sharing look amazing!  If you have not yet managed to access SeeSaw, we will be in touch and a tutorial video will be put on this website shortly.  Please look at the year group pages on this website, as additional work and links will be added.

Free School Meals

The Asda vouchers have been topped up to cover the Easter break.  The new government scheme will be rolled out very soon and we will keep you informed about how this will work.

You can read full details at: www.gov.uk/government/news/voucher-scheme-launches-for-schools-providing-free-school-meals

ParentPay

We are aware that many parents have paid in advance for school lunches, trip and other items via ParentPay.  We are currently in discussion with ParentPay about releasing the money held in your account.  We will let you know as soon as refunds are available.

We are doing everything we can to support you during this challenging time. 

School Provision

We remain open for those children who cannot stay at home.  We will support any key worker whose role is critical to the Covid-19 response and have a plan in place to do this.  In order to limit the spread of the virus and with current staffing levels, we are unable to open the school for large numbers of pupils. 

If you believe that both parents/carers fit the criteria of a key worker AND you cannot keep your child safe at home, please email: admin@riverside.hereford.sch.uk to request a copy.  

The government has stated: 'If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading'.

We recognise the amazing work that is going on during this crisis and will provide an essential service in supporting your children whilst you do this.  We know how our community supports each other every day, not just during such difficult and worrying times.  I am aware that there are many unsung heroes out there providing support.  Thank you.
