Critical Worker Information

Our school is closed. Please DO NOT attempt to attend our site unless we have given you prior permission and there is absolutely no other alternative for your children.

Minimising transmission of COVID-19 is our priority, and in light of the recent Government advice about social distancing, it is strongly advised that if there is any way for a child to be at home and not in school, this is the best way to proceed in order to keep children, families and staff safe.

If you completed the online form and now no longer require school provision, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thank you to those that already have been in touch having made alternative arrangements.

If you would like more information regarding Critical Worker and vulnerable student provision, please email Deputy Head Simon Morton (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Online Safety

besmartonlineDuring this time you and your children may experience difficulties. For children in particular, this may be a difficult and stressful time, although they may not always show or share it. If you have any questions or need support, please do not hesitate to get in touch with school via email. You can email the school direct or encourage your child to email their teachers who are regularly in touch setting work.

An area we all need to be mindful of is the increased exposure and reliance on online platforms both for work and for social purposes. Children can become particularly vulnerable online if we do not supervise or monitor their usage, even on apps such as You Tube. Key apps to monitor and be mindful of are Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp to name a few. Keep checking and asking who they are following, or who they have received follow requests from. If they do not know them in person, it is hard to justify a connection online.
