During the enforced closure the school site is closed to all students with the exception of those who are authorised and have pre-arranged to attend. ( in this case, vulnerable students and children of key workers).
Parents who wish for their children to attend school during an enforced closure should contact the school via email@example.com to make the necessary arrangements, giving as much notice as possible. Please avoid sending your child in to school if you have not made contact with us, as it is important for us to ensure that we have enough workstations and staff available each day. We would be grateful if parents could also advise us of any specific dietary requirements their children may have so that we can ensure we have appropriate provision in the canteen.
In the interests of safety and hygiene students are required to
Wear freshly washed clothes each day (a specific uniform is not required)
Bring their own basic learning equipment (pens, pencils, coloured pencils, ruler, eraser, calculator, etc). They can bring in their own electronic devices if they wish.
Wash their hands at the start of the day, regularly during the day and before they leave.
Ensure that they keep to the rules around social distancing whilst in school.
Remain on site during the school day.
