Important message for parents regarding sending their child into school (26/03/2020)

Parents will be aware that Wilsthorpe School is following the very stringent measures imposed by the government to try to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.  Wilsthorpe can only accept students into school for childcare where both parents at home are front-line NHS staff or workers from other front line emergency services working to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

However, some parents have been in touch stating they have now changed jobs and are now working as key workers in one of these front-line occupations.

Where this is the case, as at the start of the ‘lockdown’, parents need to provide the school with details of this new employment.  This confirmation should be from a line manager on company headed paper, including a contact telephone number for the line manager.

Without this confirmation, we are unable to accept any new students into the school.

All other students should remain at home.

Some parents have asked about the legality of students being left at home on their own.  The NSPCC confirms there is no legal age for leaving children alone however, they issue the following advice to parents:

  • Babies and toddlers should never be left alone

  • Children aged 11 and under shouldn’t be left at home for a long time

  • Children under the age of 16 should not be left alone overnight

Thank you to all parents for your continued support in these difficult times.

Jonathan Crofts (Headteacher)
