I hope this newsletter find you and your family safe and healthy. You will have heard from the government and in the news that primary schools will reopen for identified year groups from June 1st. For secondary schools, the current intention is that no year groups will be asked to come in for “normal” timetabled lessons. However, there is to be time set aside for year ten and twelve students for face-to-face sessions with teachers. These sessions are extremely important is providing students a plan of action for students to prepare themselves for September.

Children generally do NOT suffer serious illness as a result of COVID 19. This applies to even our most vulnerable children, yet some of the conditions that children will become ill with are far more serious.
If parents are concerned they should contact their GP or dial 111 or, if very worried, go to a local urgent care centre or to A&E. Hospitals have measures in place to help protect people from COVID-19 and full personal protection equipment is available for all consultations taking place with patients in our local hospitals.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have prepared a leaflet giving
advice of when to seek medical help:
Safeguarding Newsletter 3
I hope this newsletter find you well and healthy in these “unprecedented” times. I’m not sure I will completely get used to my new working lifestyle. I hope I don’t. I hope a day comes soon where the situation changes, enabling the government to reopen schools. Until then, we will continue as we are; providing education and supporting our students, just in a different way.
You will know that our school is closed, except for vulnerable students and those whose parents are critical workers. The essential support our school is providing the community will continue throughout the Easter holidays and beyond, if required.
The vast majority of our students, however, will be educated remotely at home, via the school’s website through “One Drive” and Show My Homework”. If your child is experiencing any difficulties they can email their subject teacher direct or you can contact the school on 01543 622600. Please leave a message and a member of staff will contact you.
Catch22 have compiled 2 factsheets containing the telephone numbers and websites of several support services that children and parents can access over the next few weeks/months whilst isolated.
