Welcome to Porters Grange Primary School & Nursery

Please check your School Ping app for the following important message and, where necessary, respond through the app.


As you know, all schools are to close from the end of the day today except for certain children. The Government has stressed that all children must be kept away from school if at all possible to help slow the spread of the virus. There will, however, be exceptional circumstances in which the children of key workers will need to come into school where no alternative childcare can be found. If key workers can keep their children away from school, they must.


If you believe that you fall into this category of families with key workers who are not able to keep their children away from school, please complete the information below by the end of the school day to enable us to plan for next week. The criteria for key workers can be found by clicking here www.bit.ly/2J47D5o .


If your child falls into the vulnerable category, you will be contacted directly by the school.


Thank you for your support during this difficult period.


Please log in to School Ping to complete a few very short questions. If you are not able to access your School Ping App and you believe that this applies to you, please email the school office on office@portersgrange.southend.sch.uk and answer the following questions:


Do you qualify as a key worker?

What is the nature of your job?

Will your child need to attend school from Monday?

If they will be attending, what will they be having for lunch? (free school meal, paid school meal or home packed lunch)
