Re: Coronavirus update – school closure to most pupils

Following on from my last update, I’m now writing to let you know that we have now been instructed to close the school to almost all children after this Friday until further notice.

As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers.  The government is updating its definition of key workers. These are people who – in these unprecedented times – are needed on the frontline. So, of course that means those working in the NHS, in care homes, in the police and fire service – and teachers. But it will also include people who are involved retail delivery and those suddenly manufacturing equipment such as ventilators and children with specific needs.

We are waiting for the government to publish more information on what this means, but it would help us in the meantime if you could let us know if you think your child may fall into one of these categories and would need to be safely supervised.  Please note that we only need to know if you need to take up this service.  You may be a key worker and wish e.g. for your year 10 child to safely continue their study at home.  If both parents are key workers and you would require ongoing supervision in school we need to know. 

Please contact the school using the email address below as soon as possible but before the start of the school day tomorrow. We’ll be in touch again as soon as we are sure who this does apply to.

supervision@st-josephs.bolton.sch.uk

Please tell us your key worker roles, name of child and confirm that you wish to take up the offer of supervision during school hours.

All other children will need to stay at home, so we ask that you do not send your child into school from Monday onwards.

St. Joseph’s  is an 11-16 voluntary aided co-educational Roman Catholic Secondary School under the trusteeship of The Diocese of Salford.  We are maintained by the Bolton Local Authority and are a growing school with 926 students currently enrolled.  St. Joseph’s was established as a secondary school on 5th November 1963.

We have a long-standing reputation for high academic achievement, being an orderly, caring and welcoming community and provision for an extensive range of extra-curricular and out of hours activities. We hope that you gain an insight into the faith and friendship that is shared on a daily basis in our wonderful school and community.

Currently under construction is a £3,000,000 new wing of the school, creating capacity for a further 10 classrooms, 2 ICT rooms and a large library and drama studio.  This is due to open in the summer term of 2020.  The whole school is excited about this new project, which will give our students a smart and spacious addition to their learning environment.
