Correspondence regarding Covid-19

The School remains closed until further notice

updated on the 23rd March 2020

An update from the JT Team.

Our main focus this week is doing whatever we can to support the pupils who have the most complex health and care needs, in conjunction with the Local Authority. This may involve asking available staff to step outside their usual roles, if necessary. We would always go the extra mile for our pupils and will help in any way we can. Your son/daughter's class teacher will be contacting you frequently to check in and see if there is anything you need. If we can help we will and can signpost where needed. The advice remains that the safest place for anyone is at home.
We continue to work closely with the Local Authority and have already given a list of staff names to start this process off. We know the pupils attending the Steven Wiltshire Centre will appreciate a familiar face!
For our families on free school meals we will be in touch soon to let you know how you can receive additional support for meal provision.
Please do use the school contacts in your family packs to get in touch for any reason at all.
Please look after your loved ones and stay safe. Thinking of you all
