1st June 2020 Coronavirus update
Dear Parents and Carers
The school currently remains closed to protect the health and safety of our vulnerable community. The Government has advised schools to plan a phased return starting from 1st June 2020. Schools will only reopen when it has been assessed as safe to do so and this will be for a reduced number of pupils on a reduced timetable. Special schools, special post-16 institutions and hospital schools have been told to work towards welcoming back as many children and young people as can be safely catered for in their setting. We have sent all parents a questionnaire regarding reopening. Thank you to those of you who have sent this back. If you have not yet completed it, can we ask that you do as we are using the information collected to plan how we will reopen. We will take all responses into account, but please be aware that ultimately we will be guided as to what is assessed as safe for our pupils and staff.
For your information please we have attached a sheet of FAQ:
For the most update to date Government guidance information please go to:
Teachers are organising remote learning sessions using Google Meets. Teachers are also setting fun activities that you can do at home with your child on Evidence for Learning. Please continue to add your own photos and videos - it is great to see our pupils looking well and having fun! If you have problems accessing either of these please email the school.
We have attached some links to free websites that you might find useful to support your child's learning and wellbeing during these difficult times.
During our school closure you will still be able to make contact with the school via office at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also email Julie Cook, our Family Support Worker at: email@example.com Julie is able to answer day to day queries during closure and can support with applications for free school meal vouchers.
