Free School Meals
We are happy to provide Free School Meal students with a packed lunch. Should you require a Free School Meal for your child please inform the school by 10.30am each day the lunch is required via firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 01733 246700.
Staff have been working hard today to ensure online learning is being put in place. It is pleasing to see so many students accessing and completing learning. As you can appreciate it takes time to ensure that every subject is uploaded with learning, please encourage students to be patient and to access the learning that is already uploaded. If students have queries they can communicate directly with staff via One Note or email but should be mindful that staff may not be able to respond immediately and to please be patient. Please also ensure that students are only using their school email address to contact their teachers for support.
We are collating learning for those students that are unable to access online work. We will send out a communication via a text when learning is ready for collection. We anticipate this will be by 9.30am tomorrow, Thursday 19 March.
Safeguarding and Wellbeing
As previously mentioned we have extensive mental health and wellbeing resources accessible from the school website – click here.
Should you have a safeguarding concern please contact the safeguarding team via email@example.com or by contacting Mrs Gilligan on 01733 246700.
We appreciate your continued support and patience during these unprecedented circumstances.
