Community Classrooms are for vulnerable students and key workers’ children

Parents should keep children at home wherever possible and thanks to everyone across our community who has followed that advice. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in our Community Classrooms, the lower the risk of the virus spreading.

The purpose of our Community Classroom to provide care for the children of key workers and children who are vulnerable. Only children in these categories can attend. Information on the list of key workers is here.

Any parents who want their children to attend the Community Classroom must inform reception, otherwise we cannot guarantee places.

We will ask parents on a weekly basis to re-confirm if they want to continue using the Community Classroom in school.

We are working to maintain as much stability for the students’ education as possible. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we are putting in place plans to make sure students can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning. Exams due to take place in May and June have been cancelled.

We will update this page and keep in touch with parents and students via email and text message.

Please continue to follow health guidance.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.

If you need to contact the school, please phone/email.
