This is an incredible difficult and unprecedented time for everybody. As a school we have closed for the majority of students. The closure is in place to try and reduce the transmission of the virus and therefore help the NHS to manage and reduce the number of deaths. It is vital that we do our bit and follow this guidance.
During this period we have in place a full timetable of live online lessons. Children must attend these lessons.
We have adapted the times of these lessons to help students have screen breaks. For more details please see our Remote Learning Policy Link

The government has outlined a list of vulnerable children the key categories for this are:
- Children with an EHCP or significant SEN need
- Children in care
- Children with services
- Otherwise categorised by the school or other agency as vulnerable
- Children who are unable to access remote learning
We are providing a full taught curriculum for categories 1 – 4 and expect these children to attend school. For children in category 5 we are supporting children on an individual basis.
