HOT, HOT, HOT Monday 18th July

The weather warning is now RED which is particularly worrying for those with medical conditions.

Therefore what we will do on Monday:

  • we will start lunches at 11.00am and anyone who wishes to collect their children early can do so from 12 o’clock
  • children do not have to wear school uniform on Monday or Tuesday
  • we will remain open for those who need us to, but please ensure your child has a water bottle, a hat, apply sun cream, make sure your child’s shoulders are covered and most important, they bring any medication (e.g. asthma pump)
  • we will limit going outside as much as we can and will be for very short periods
  • we will authorise any absence if you feel it is too hot for your child to attend school and this will not be reflected on any reports. Please email attandance@riverside.southwark.sch.uk and tell us you are keeping out of the heat
  • we will review on Monday what we will do on Tuesday and let you know as soon as possible – once we have checked the forecast.
