Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update 27.03.20

Our school is closed until further notice.  
 
Emergency childcare provision will now be provided through a hub based at Riverside  Junior School. The message from the Government remains the same:

 

If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.

#StayHomeSaveLives

 

This emergency provision is only for vulnerable children including those with SEND and social worker involvement. It is also for families with critical workers whose work is essential to the COVID 19 response.  

The provision will be open Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 3:30pm. Children are required to bring a packed lunch and own snacks for the day. 
 
If you feel you qualify and you require an emergency childcare place, please contact school via email: admin@centralstreet.calderdale.sch.uk
 
The provision will be open during the Easter holidays.

Update 22.03.20

Although we remain open for a small number of key worker and vulnerable children, not as an educational setting but as a safe space with a very skeleton staff, we would like to direct you to this advice from the Education Secretary on behalf of the Government.

You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. 

If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.
