Information to Parents and Carers (Last updated 27 March 2020)
Firstly, a huge thank you to every parent and carer for doing your utmost to keep your child and family safe by keeping them home except where this is not possible. I know that this is not easy, but it is crucial. This is not only keeping you and your family safer, it is protecting the NHS from becoming overloaded
Keeping in Touch
School staff will be regularly in touch with all families by telephone to see how things are going We hope to expand this to video calls where possible so students can feel more connected to the school. Where families are being supported by Social Services we will try and coordinate contact with them so you are not overloaded.
If Things Get Difficult
This is a very difficult time, so please let your child’s form tutor (or whichever member of staff) when they ring you. We might not have an immediate answer, but we will see what help is or might be available.
Children Missing from Education
If we cannot make contact with families we are instructed to refer them to Social Services as Children Missing from Education, so please do answer your phone, even if it’s from a private number.
We will continue to set work via the ‘home learning’ tab of this website. When school staff ring, please let them know how this is working for your child.
Free School Meals
We are making arrangements to make sure that children entitled to Free School Meals do not miss out, and will backdate this to 23 March. We know this is very important to families and will be back in touch soon about this.With my best wishes to you and your family
