Coronavirus School Closure Procedure

Our school will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply:

on instruction from the Department for Education.
on advice, if there is a confirmed case within our school community.
Steps taken to decide on whether to close the school will be as follows:

The Headteacher will liaise with the Local Authority and Chair of Governors and a joint decision will be made whether the school should be open or not should it not be under instruction from central government.

The decision to open school, or not, will be communicated to staff and communicated to parents via Weduc, Text Messaging & the school website as soon as the decision is made. It will be communicated by 3pm each day regarding the following day unless a set period has been given, for example, seven days.

Home Learning

In the event of school closure, plans have been put in place for your children's continued education. The ICT team will communicate with parents through Weduc/text messaging and work will be set accordingly. Children will be required access to the internet to complete this. Reading, English and mathematics will be set daily and all other subjects weekly should that be necessary.

Teachers will ensure that children have logins to our online resources such as Purple Mash, TT rockstars, Accelerated Reader etc. Please check you have this information.
