Monday 11th May

Update

Following the address by the Prime Minister last night, it was mentioned that schools may be in a position to begin a phased re-opening at the earliest from 1st June for particularly year groups.

With this announcement comes lots of questions that need answers. Schools are awaiting more information to be able to answer these questions.

In the short term, nothing has changed for Staincliffe and we will provide further information in the coming days and weeks once we are able to do so. It is hoped that a newsletter will follow by the end of this week, once there has been more clarity and guidance provided by the government.

In the meantime, our first priority is the safety of everyone in the school community.

Stay safe.

From everyone at Staincliffe CofE Junior School

We want to ensure everyone has access to support should they need it at this unprecidented and difficult time.

Kirklees Community Response Helpline

A new dedicated helpline has been set up as part of our Covid-19 Community Response. 

 We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders). 

 Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Our response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities. 

How to request support or offer support 

Anyone can let us know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell us about the support they may be able to offer to others.

 

 

  • Community Response helpline: 01484 226919

 

The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with us online at any time.
