Following the Prime Minister's statement regarding COVID-19 I regret to inform you that Meadows Primary School will be closed from Monday 23rd March for the foreseeable future. We are only open to children of Key Workers. 

It is very clear in the guidance set out by the Government that if children can stay safely at home, they should do so. School should only be providing childcare to workers who are essential to the COVID-19 response. 

Arrangements for Key Workers

If you have contacted us and have received either a letter of confirmation or an email confirmation of a place for your child(ren) then you will be able to arrive at school as per the details contained within the letter.  
If there is a parent/carer at home or if you are able to work from home then your child(ren) should stay safely with you. You should only bring your child to school before you start work and collect your child as soon as you finish work.

IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED WRITTEN CONFIRMATION FROM SCHOOL REGARDING A PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD(REN) PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE AT SCHOOL. 
PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW AND WE WILL RESPOND TO YOU:

If you believe you are a key worker
OR
Your child has an Educational Health Care Plan or a Social worker
AND
You will need to send your child to school.

Please email A3362@telford.gov.uk with the subject heading KEY WORKER

Please tell us:
Who your children are and their year groups
When you need your children to be in school (days/times etc)
What your key worker role is

We will then contact you to discuss further/make arrangements.

Free School Meals

If you have any queries relating to the free school meal deliveries please contact freeschoolmeals@telford.gov.uk

Communication 

Our School office will be open to deal with email enquiries. May we please remind you not to visit the office unless it is connected to key worker care, to avoid social contact.
