Back to School

Continuing to support our Keyworker students

If you or your partner is a key worker, or if your child is classed as vulnerable, then the school will remain open, as now, and we look forward to seeing them in school and beyond as normal for teaching and learning. For information on those listed by the Government as vulnerable or a key worker please visit:


Please complete the link for the key worker group if you wish to send your child in next week onwards. ONLY COMPLETE THIS FORM IF YOU ARE SENDING YOUR CHILD IN. This form will be regularly checked but please ensure this is completed with at least 24 hours’ notice due to staffing levels.

If you wish to book a place for your child after February half-term, please complete the form below:

Any questions please contact [email protected] Students will be expected to have a test prior to returning, so please arrange this and send the results to Ms Penberthy.


Students will need to bring headphones and a water bottle on site with them. They will be able to purchase food using an order form each morning for break and lunch. As you know, we have worked incredibly hard since the start of the pandemic in March to keep our school as safe as possible, and I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the safety measures in place at our school:  All students and staff must wear a face covering in communal areas, unless exempt  Everyone is expected to remain in their new allocated bubbles  Students are encouraged to wash their hands regularly throughout the day  Students now on site do not need to wear school uniform Please note we are trying to work with windows open in classrooms for ventilation. As the cold days have returned, and with the need for ventilation in mind, students may need a few more layers of clothing.
