RETURNING TO SCHOOL
A presentation on how we intend to re-open school to the whole school community over the coming weeks and months - the changes that we have to make in order to allow that to happen - what the classroom will look like and how the school day will run for our pupils - and how we need your help as parents and carers to help us to do our very best for our children and young people.

We would like to pass on some important information regarding childrens illnesses and health emergencies during the Coronavirus outbreak - If your child becomes ill for ANY reason please DO NOT put off seeking advice from either your GP or NHS 111 helpline or taking your child hospital if it is an emergency- as the Chief Medical Officer reinforced in his daily statement on the 16th April, the NHS is OPEN FOR BUSINESS, not just for Covid-19 symptoms. Please read this important information
We have put together some information which you may find of use both for yourself as a parent/carer and your children, if you need any support or helpful tips on coping with these unprecedented times. Understandably you may find you feel anxious, worried, isolated or just struggling to adjust to the times in which we find ourselves and that is all perfectly normal given the circumstances. Of course, if you are particuarly worried about a matter relating to your child or homelife, you can of course contact our family support team leader, Sarah Rubanski who will help wherever possible.
Just try and remember that we are all in this together and we will get through it together. Please do continue to follow the Governments advice of Stay at home - Protect the NHS - Save lives. The more we do this as a society we hope the quicker things will be able to return to normal.
