18th March 2020

Asalmualikum parents/carers,

The governing body supported by the East London Mosque Trusth as decided that all pupils at Al Mizan and London East Academy stay at home until further notice starting from tomorrow 19 March 2020. This is for the safety of all our pupils in light of advice we have received about the Coronavirus. We will inform you when the school will reopen via text messages insha Allah.

Learning continues

Your child’s learning is equally important to us, so during this closure we will continue to support pupils in the following ways:

• All pupils will continue with their lessons as normal through a virtual a classroom i.e. they will enter all their lessons (based on the amended timetable) online at home. Pupils will be taught live with their teacher throughout the duration of the closure as long at that is feasible. Please see the instructions attached to this letter on how to set up virtual classrooms.

• We expect parents to ensure that their children attend their virtual lessons at home on time. We will continue to monitor pupils’ attendance in every lesson.

• We will be setting up a technical support number and online support if you are facing difficulties at home with the lessons and also if you have any other urgent matters.

• All external exams will continue as normal including SATs and GCSEs unless we hear otherwise

What will NOT continue during closure:

• School trips

• After-school clubs

• Events

• Exams

We appreciate the closure will have an impact on you and your family and it’s far from an ideal scenario, but we’ll keep in touch with any updates as the situation develops. If you want to get in touch to share any concerns, please don’t hesitate to do so via our normal contact details.

Please use NHS 111 online if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next.

Thank you for your continued support.
