|School Closure: Update #5 Thursday 26th March 2020|
Perranporth Residential Cancelled
The YHA today closed all hostels until August 2020 at the earliest.
Given the wider context, I'm aware that this news is not important when stacked up against the worry of Coronavirus and the threats to families livelihoods. Nevertheless, our Year 6 children are being deprived of a special rite of passage that they have seen older friends and siblings enjoy. I know that our current Year 6s have spent months, if not years, looking forward to a special trip that will not now take place and for that I am very sad.
I have no more information to share on this at the moment, only that the school will arrange for full refunds to be given. Please do not contact the school about refunds at this stage - we are on the case.
Free School Meal Scam
The government has passed on details of a a Free School Meals scam whereby parents receive an official looking email stating the following:
‘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. Delete the message.
