Important Update – Monday 4th Jan 2021

Dear Parents/Carers
Following the update from Boris Johnson this evening, we will be providing on site education for all those pupils who fall within the governments list of key worker or vulnerable/SEND pupils (EHCP). For all other pupils, our provision will move to remote learning with effect from tomorrow morning.
We will try to make the process for tomorrow as easy as possible but really need your input as soon as possible this evening.
Our remote learning policy is on our school website.
We will be providing a slightly different teaching this lockdown as per our policy which is in line with the government guidance and expectations this year.
Please can you let us know if you require support with technology (as per our previous letters) we have Vodafone 4g data cards available from the office. We have a list of pupils who have previously requested support with laptops/ipads and will be contacting those parents in due course to arrange collections. If you feel you need further assistance in this, please let us know as soon as possible, via email to admin.
Our survey for places is attached – we would be grateful if you could complete this as soon as possible – we already have a list of pupils who used the provision last lockdown and will base our provision tomorrow on this list. If you feel that you need your child to be added to this list for a place in school rather than learning remotely then please ensure the form is completed in full.
We will review the questionnaires later this evening at 9.30pm and contact anyone who does NOT have a place before 10pm. We are hoping that we will be able to offer places to all who need them but will keep this under continual review as previously, via weekly questionnaires. We will re-look at the questionnaire outcomes in the morning so if you do not manage to complete this by the deadline tonight, we will attempt to contact you through the day tomorrow to advise if you can utilise the on-site provision from Wednesday.
Pupils who attend school will not be required to wear uniform and the current ‘staggered’ system of timings will cease for now; the school day will be from 9am – 3.10pm.
Whilst we are aware that this is contradicts our letter from earlier today, rest assured we will continue to try to support our whole community through the next few weeks and work with you all in keeping your children safe and healthy whilst also continuing their education.
