To all our Families,
We hope you are keeping well and taking care. Please see below links to information from Warwickshire County Council to support you and your family at this challenging time.
Family Information Service newsletter – this is being sent out twice per week at the moment. Due to the fact that the platform has recently moved to mailchimp, this is often landing in peoples junk mail (even if it didn’t used to), so please check if you haven’t seen the newsletter for a while.
Community led activities. a spreadsheet put together by Localities teams listing a wide range of activities that are going on in communities to support locally i.e. volunteers to pick up shopping etc. It is quite difficult to scroll through, but has some great local information – https://apps.warwickshire.gov.uk/api/documents/WCCC-966-2051
The well being and safety of your children remains our priority, despite the distance between us all. Please use the Family Safeguarding Link or go to https://www.st-benedicts.org/safeguarding/ for additional support and services that are available to help young people during the school closure period.
