I am sure that most of you will
already have heard the Government’s announcement that all schools in
England are to close from this Friday.
Lincoln UTC will be open
as normal, for all year groups on Thursday 19th March and Friday 20th
March. We will be closed from Monday, until further notice.
government are obviously concerned that childcare difficulties (due to
school closures) might have an impact on the ability of key workers,
particularly in the NHS, to attend work and support those cases who need
hospital care. Our position, at Lincoln UTC, is somewhat unusual as we
do not have any students of primary school age or students in the
younger secondary year groups (years 7 to 9).
Schools are being
allowed to remain open for students whose parents or carers work in one
of these key professions. We are also allowed to remain open for
students who have an education health care plan (EHCP) or who might be
particularly vulnerable for other reasons.
If you believe that
you (or your child) fall into one of these categories and you want or
need your child to continue to attend during this period of school
closure please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. We will
get back to you within 24 hours to discuss a bespoke, individual plan
for you and your child.
More details on how we will support
students during this period of closure will be sent out tomorrow. Staff
here at the UTC will still be working during this period and we will
continue to do everything possible to support you and your children.
