  • Latest information from Mr George

    Published 30/04/20

    Good morning

    The Government has confirmed the latest decision around school closures

    ‘The Education Minister has signed a further Ministerial Decision, based on the latest advice from the Medical Officer of Health, to extend the closure of the majority of Government-provided schools and colleges to 22 May, the start of the Summer half-term holiday.

    This means that the earliest that schools and colleges could reopen is Monday, 1 June after the end of the Summer half-term break’.

    We appreciate the challenges that this extension my make for our families and colleagues and we will continue to work towards supporting our children and school community as fully as possible.

    There is a new Government-based website now set up for children and parents to access with some excellent resources and ideas available.

    I would encourage all children and families to look at this and explore the resources available.

    The Education Minister, Tracey Vallois, has said:

    “I am delighted to launch the new Learning At Home online platform to support parents who will be worried about COVID-19, home learning, and the impact that this will have on their child’s development. Schools are doing everything they can to support students to learn at home.

    “We need to support the incredible work that our schools are already doing to ensure students continue to receive the education they deserve and need. No-one expects parents to replace their child’s teacher. Our schools will continue to manage their students’ learning.”

    The main aim of the new website is to provide parents and carers of primary and secondary school pupils with the necessary tools to support them with home learning.

    This new online platform is aimed at students aged 3-19. There are simple guidelines to assist parents and carers with learning at home, and to support them in maintaining the safety and wellbeing of their family.

    The new website is:  https://learningathome.gov.je/

    Stay safe and healthy;

    Kind regards

  • Message from Mr George.

    Published 22/04/20

    Dear parents and carers

    We are aware that there are many demands on families at this time, especially after we have been in a lockdown for a number of weeks now.

    From this, we know that more and more families recognise the need and benefits for their children coming into school. However, this is highly restricted and is only available to a very limited number of children. The children who are able to access school have to be referred through to the Government, and the Government then inform the school of who can attend.

    For the majority of families, this will be for children whose parents are ‘critical’ or ‘essential’ workers.

    All parents can apply for this status although it may not be accepted, depending on your role and the context of your work.

    However, if you feel you may be eligible to make an application then please follow the link: https://www.gov.je/Health/Coronavirus/Pages/CriticalWorkersAndChildcare.aspx

    Alternatively, you can seek advice from your employer who may make the application on your behalf.

    If you are self-employed, then you will have to fill in the form independently.

    The purpose of the school closures is to minimise the contact and movement of people across the island.

    The offer of placement to specific children is to ensure that their parents can fulfil critical roles which will support the health and safety of the community.

    We appreciate that this may be frustrating and difficult for many people and families but would ask that we try and maintain the excellent level of patience and understanding shown so far.

    Thank you for your support in this.

    Kind regards

    Iain George

  • Keeping Safe

    Published 14/04/20

    Dear Janvrin families

    Please find attached some information that has been developed by the Jersey Government and is an initiative that is being launched today.

    Keeping our children, and each other, safe is the most important thing we can do at this time.

    We also understand that the current situation can cause difficulties for families so it’s important that we are able to support and highlight any families where difficulties may be seen or heard.

    Thank you,

    Iain George
