Coronavirus Advice and Guidance
Thank you to all the critical / key workers who have made the difficult decision to keep their child/children at home for the safety of pupils, staff and the wider community.
Government guidelines state that parents who are critical / key workers should aim to keep their child/children at home if they can.
If your child has been invited to attend school during this lockdown, we expect them to attend every day unless you advise us that you are withdrawing them to learn at home. If your child is unable to attend for any reason including feeling unwell, please report this as usual by calling the absence line and leaving a clear message. Your message should include your child's name, class and reason for absence.

Children have access to a multitude of online sites and apps and understanding the potential benefit and risks associated with each can be challenging. The Parent Zone website includes a guide to the most popular online services that your child may have access to.
NetAware.org.uk also offers a similar collection of resources.
Use of IT Equipment
If your child does not have access to a laptop or electronic device or you are struggling sharing at home, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can make plans to support you and your child.
We are constantly monitoring the Coronavirus situation at our schools and risk assessing the site. For details of how we are risk managing our sites, please click here to see our full Risk Assessment.
Families who are eligible for Free School Meals
If your child is entitled to free school meals and they are working remotely at home food vouchers are being provided. The school will be in direct contact to let you know how to collect these.
