Dear Parents,

Thank you for all your support and understanding during this challenging time as Government advice has changed daily and we, as a school, have adapted and changed accordingly.

The current instruction is to stay at home and stay safe for the next three weeks. Therefore as we already had the  Easter break from April 3rd – April 13th the school will now be closed as a lock-down procedure to help battle the spread of Covid-19. This will help keep our school family safe and those around us safe and reduce the risk.

There are lots of opinions currently around about the virus and fake news circulating. Please access the government advice pages for up-to-date advice and information. www.gov.uk

You can directly contact myself at: head@saviour.manchester.sch.uk if you have any concerns regarding your child's welfare or have a change in circumstances or need someone to call you at home. 

We will keep you up-dated on this page as well as texts and the school twitter page @SaviourPrimary 

Teachers are updating their class pages with ideas and websites to use over this time but the most important thing is to establish a routine even if for part of the day. This helps with structure for the children and there are lots of ideas and free online activities available. However, it is also important to take the time to reassure your child and continue hand washing and awareness. Make this part of the day’s routine as well.

Our homework routine of ‘little and often’ is a good way to keep learning going. Spellings, tables or number bonds and reading. Can the children create their own learning conversations or record each day a diary of what they are up to. Please do not worry if no 'school' work is completed, there are lots of activities children can do where they are still learning.

We all miss our school family and pray for everyone's safety

Stay safe and stay home as this saves lives.

Mrs Anderson

Help with food costs while schools are closed

 

We want to ensure that all our children and young people have access to a lunchtime meal while protecting our staff and families. 

MCC have the following arrangements in place to support families during this period:-

  • FSM pupils_ link to Council’s Voucher Scheme.
  • Hardship support to families 

 

FSM Pupils:-

Children who would normally receive a free school meal from the school, based on household income or due to being an asylum seeker

 

The government has advised that they expect to have a new scheme up and running in the near future. They intend to issue vouchers directly to families. This will not be up and running for a few weeks. 

Because of this, MCC will make local arrangements to support families until the national voucher scheme is in place.

 

Please access this from Wednesday 25th March as the school is not in a position to continue making packed lunched for collection. 

The contribution towards a lunchtime meal is £2.00 per day (£10 per week) for each school child or young person in the household.

We will be able to pay this money within a few days by the following methods

  • A bank transfer into a nominated bank account
  • A secure text message that can be used to access cash from a range of Paypoint outlets in the city
  • A voucher that can be printed and can then be exchanged for cash from a range of Paypoint outlets in the city. 

Parents can make an application, please submit a request via the Council’s welfare Provision Scheme.

Hardship:-

To support to families facing hardship

 

Because schools have closed and some families are facing additional financial challenges due to the Covid 19 virus, MCC want to provide support to families, who most need it. 

MCC are providing a financial grant to parents and carers of the following groups of children and young people. 

To qualify the family must be:

  • a Manchester resident or supported by our Homelessness Service; and
  • whose family has been hardest hit by the recent issues and may be waiting for benefits to be assessed or have a gap in their income due to being laid off etc.

 

The contribution towards a lunchtime meal is £2 per day (£10 per week) for each school age child or young person in the household.

We will be able to pay this money within a few days by the following methods

  • A bank transfer into a nominated bank account
  • A secure text message that can be used to access cash from a range of Paypoint outlets in the city
  • A voucher that can be printed and can then be exchanged for cash from a range of Paypoint outlets in the city.
