Key Workers & Vulnerable Students
The following extract is taken from Government advice
The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
It is important to underline that schools, all childcare settings (including early years settings, childminders and providers of childcare for school-age children), colleges and other educational establishments, remain safe places for children. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
Schools, and all childcare providers, are therefore being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.
Guidance about attending school, whether you qualify as a Key Worker (Critical to the Covid 19 Response) or whether your child is classified as ‘Vulnerable’ is available here.

Students in school are expected to follow the Google Classroom work being set remotely by their teachers. However, we have organised a rota of staff to supervise the students attending school and we are trying to organise something creative and something active each day, so that students are not fixed on a computer all day.
