Dear Parents/Carers

 

At 8pm last night, January  4th 2021, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that from today all schools should move to remote education except for those pupils whose parents/carers are key workers and the most vulnerable pupils.

 

On this basis we will offer places to pupils who most need them. Depending on demand we may have to offer part time placements.


From Wednesday only those pupils who have been offered a specific place will attend school. This arrangement will stay in place until further notice.


Your child’s form tutor and PAL will be contacting you to discuss remote learning. This will involve daily contact from them at a set agreed time to speak with every pupil and support their learning remotely.  Staff will be delivering remote learning packs to your home on a weekly basis and complete safe and well checks.

 

Pupils who are entitled to free school meals will receive packed lunches every week whilst we await further clarification from the government.

 

I know these are worrying times for many of our families and I hope we are able to fully reopen to all our pupils in the very near future. We will remain in contact with you through this national lockdown.

 

If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the Pastoral Managers.

 

Kind regards

Kate Beale
