Covid-19

*Update 10.9.2021 - New Covid guidelines and contingency framework for schools

 

*Update 5.3.2021 – Full Opening

From Monday 8th March 2021 all children should return to school and attendance will be mandatory once again from this date. Mandatory attendance means that it is your legal duty as a parent to send your child (if they are of compulsory school age) to school regularly if they are registered at one.

Please see our Full Reopening Guidance for Parents for further details.

A small number of children and young people may be unable to attend in line with public health advice to self-isolate. You should not send your child to school if they:

  • have symptoms or live in a household with someone who has symptoms
  • have tested positive themselves, even if they do not have symptoms
  • live in a household with someone who has tested positive, even if that person does not have symptoms
  • are a close contact of someone who has coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • are required to self-isolate for travel-related reasons
  • If your child is confirmed as clinically extremely vulnerable.

If your child is unable to attend school for these reasons, remote education and pastoral support will be provided in line with our Remote Education Parent Guide

Covid Catch-up Premium

From September 2020 the government will be providing funding for schools to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal ‘catch-up premium’ for the 2020 to 2021 academic year which schools should use for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.

Our Covid-19 Catch-up Premium Strategy details how we intend to use the Catch-up Premium funding.
