Prendergast School is closed to most students from Friday 20 March 2020

This informs all our parents and carers that Prendergast School has been instructed by the Department for Education (DfE) to close the school to almost all children at the end of the school day on Friday 20 March, until further notice.

Please read the letter from Ms Ledger, Headteacher (20 March 2020).

In summary, the guidance states:

  • If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
  • If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.

Prendergast School will maintain a safe educational provision in school for the children of critical workers. 

The letter informs you that all other children will need to stay at home, so we ask that you do not send your child into school from Monday 23 March onwards unless you or your child falls into one of the critical worker categories.

Please read the letter carefully. It provides you with information about the critical worker categories.

This is a difficult time for everyone and we thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards,

Prendergast School
