Coronavirus Update

 

January 2021 Update

All schools and colleges are currently closed to all but vulnerable children and the children of key workers.

The government is taking every possible measure to reduce cases in the community and protect the NHS. This means, at the moment, the majority of school and college students should be at home.


Remote learning is being provided for all pupils working from home to ensure pupils have access to quality lesson content.

Any families facing any difficulties are encouraged to contact the school. All our staff are still working to provide the best possible education and support the community at this difficult time.

 

COVID-19: Guidance for Education Settings

The Department for Education have set up a helpline that is now available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents, carers and young people can contact this helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

The best way to tackle the challenges posed by Coronavirus is by following Public Health England’s advice, for example on hand washing, and reducing the impact and spread of misinformation by relying on information from trusted sources, such as NHS and Gov.uk.
