Coronavirus: How to keep children healthy, happy, learning and entertained at home
 

Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
Here is your free e-copy of Family First magazine, packed full of information to help keep children happy, learning & entertained at home during lockdown- We hope it helps in some way.
 

COVID-19 and Home Learning

 

In these unprecedented times where the vast majority of our children are not in school every day and are, instead, being educated and cared for at home, we aim to provide as much support as we possibly can to help our children's time at home run as smoothly as possible. The 'Learning' tab on our website's menu leads you to a page for each year group which will provide a variety of activities and suggestions of things your child could do at home. These suggestions can be used alongside the Learning Packs that our children brought home with them last week as well as any of Activity Passport activities which can be completed at home. We will use this page to post any updates or information that we think is important to our families during this time.

WARNING - Free school meals scam

The Department for Education is raising awareness of a scam email about free school meals.

The department has been informed some parents have received an email stating the following:

‘As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported’.

The DfE has posted messages on social media warning parents that it is a scam, that the email is not from a local authority and urging them not to respond to it, and to delete immediately.

Bradford Council has shared the DfE message via its own social media channels. Schools are urged to be aware and share the warning with parents. 

This is the text of the DfE message, should you want to copy and paste into your own communications to parents;

We have been informed some parents have received an email stating the following:

‘As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported’.

This is a scam email – it is not from a local authority. Please do not respond to it, and delete immediately.

Pause and notice what you are saying, doing or thinking. Write it down. Ask yourself if that thought or activity is helping you or not right now. If it's not helping, choose to think or do something different.
