Dear Parents / Carers,
As you will be aware, all schools in the country have been instructed by the government to close for all children except vulnerable children and those of key workers. Keyworth will be closed until further notice. Throughout this closure, we will continue to communicate with our families through text message, email and on the school website. As social distancing and self-isolation are the absolute best ways to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus, we would strongly urge all families to stay at home unless absolutely necessary – this is a public health emergency.
Parent contributions for food parcels
The Parents / Carers of Bessemer Primary School, our partner school, have set up a donation page where money can be raised in order that we can create and distribute food parcels for families in our school communities who may need additional support during this difficult time. I would like to thank them for their kindness and generosity, with the Keyworth community already benefiting from their donations. We want to continue to provide as much support to our families as we can so if you are able to donate, then please click on the following link: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=FriendsatBessemerFoodPackages&isTeam=true.
Southwark Emergency Support Scheme (SESS) can help you if you’re a Southwark resident who’s facing a crisis, emergency or disaster and needs help.
We’re making temporary changes to the scheme so those affected by COVID-19 (coronavirus) can get urgent support.
If you’ve had a sudden loss or reduction to your income and can’t meet your household’s basic needs you can now apply for support – for example:
- you’re on a zero hours contract, or have lost your job, and are now without work
- you’ve applied for Universal Credit and haven’t received your first payment
- your income has fallen but your benefits haven’t yet changed
