School open for children of critical workers and children considered to be vulnerable.
School is open for children of critical workers, whose work is critical to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and EU transition response. Our risk assessment process is rigorous and is always checked by senior staff at Community Academies Trust. See here for the current risk assessment. See here for a breakdown of jobs that are considered to be 'critical'.
School is also open for children considered to be vulnerable. See here for an explanation.
Normal school hours for children attending school will be 9am until 3pm, but we can help critical workers with childcare between 7:45am and 9am and between 3pm and 4:15pm. Children should come in school uniform and bring a packed lunch. If a school lunch is required this should be ordered through the school office.
For all other pupils, learning will take place at home and teachers will set appropriate learning activities.
We will continue to communicate most regularly using ClassDojo, but we will also make use of this website's class and year group pages to share documents and useful links for home learning.
Teachers will also set work for home learning using ClassDojo. You will need to access this from a computer or tablet device. If this is a problem for you, please contact the school office.
We will need you to keep in touch with the class teacher using ClassDojo too.
We expect families working at home to do their best to support children's education continuing by providing a quiet space, a regular routine, encouragement and access to equipment. We can help with all of these things if you ask us. Details of our Remote Education Offer are here. Details of our Expectations of Children and Families Learning At Home are here. We are asking families to sign an online agreement, which also includes what families should expect from school staff: Family Agreement Form

- Special Educational Needs (including Autism) apps and games
