Roselands Infant School and Stafford Junior School are closed to the majority of pupils.

Roselands Infant School and Stafford Junior School will remain shut to the majority of pupils until at least January 11.

The schools’ statement says: “We are determined that no child will be disadvantaged by the situation so a member of staff will be in touch to discuss any worries or barriers you may have and other ways in which we can provide support at this time.

Any child who is eligible for Free School Meals, but is not attending a critical worker or vulnerable bubble, will receive vouchers next week. These families will receive an email on Tuesday 5th January with further information.

We fully appreciate this is a very difficult time for very many of you and we will keep the situation under review and keep you updated. However, at this time we have to be confident that the school is a safe environment for all children and the staff before we can re-open fully for all children.”
