April 1st @educationgovukWe have been informed some parents have received an email stating:
‘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 - do not respond, and delete immediately. https://t.co/SJgufa8Sw4

March 26th @eastmidsacademyWe’ve had a really productive meeting with @mycountycouncil about closer working during this national emergency. We’ve had so many of our amazing staff volunteer to deliver provision for key worker children and vulnerable pupils. We’d be proud to help where we can. #coronavirus
March 25th @eastmidsacademyWe've been working hard over the past weeks to get home learning resources in place ready for school closures and it's definitely paying off! We've so proud to see pupils across our schools embracing the task and working hard 👍 #homelearning #schoolclosuresuk https://t.co/fiIJlPBdWY

March 20th@OrchardEMATParents, if you think you qualify as a key worker and would like your child to attend school from Monday, please look out for a text or email from us. We'll be asking you to complete a form to provide details about your employment. Thanks in advance.
March 20th@OrchardEMATThe Government has published its key worker list https://t.co/Li7KkcjIcX. Please remember, if it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
March 20th @educationgovukAt the end of the day on Friday, educational settings in England will close to all except the most vulnerable children & children of critical workers who would otherwise need to stay home.

March 19th@OrchardEMATWe know there's some confusion among our parents about which of you classify as key workers. We're still waiting for the Government's list outlining this. We'll share the information as soon as we receive it #schoolclosuresuk
March 18th@OrchardEMATA letter will be sent to all parents/carers tomorrow (Thursday) about the Government's announcement of school closures. Please look out for it.
March 18th @willenhospiceCan you #help? We're in need of some hand sanitiser at the Hospice. We know it's quite scarce at the moment, but if you have any you can donate it will be hugely appreciated! Please comment below, or call the Hospice on 01908 663636 https://t.co/KwDkEsRdJu
March 18th@OrchardEMATThis includes before and after-school Year 6 interventions. Breakfast Club will run as normal.
We have taken this decision early for you to be able to plan ahead, rather than having to cancel clubs at late notice next week.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
March 18th@OrchardEMATLike every school and business, we don’t know how many staff we will have able to work in the coming days / weeks. For this reason we have decided to cancel after-school clubs from Monday until further notice.
