School Closure

The Government has announced that ALL schools in England will close from Friday 20th March until further notice. The school will remain open for children of key workers and vulnerable children (those with a social worker or an EHCP)

You should ONLY send your child to school if there is NO OTHER appropriate care available. 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. You MUST let us know if you intend to send your child to school so we can plan for them. ONLY do so if it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY for you to go to work and no other arrangements are available. 

Key Workers

Key workers are defined on this page. Remember, your should ONLY send your child to school if there is NO OTHER appropriate care available. 

If you are a key worker, please click this link to let us know your child will be attending next week. You MUST let us know before you send your child to school. 

School Provision

For those attending school in the weeks ahead, you will receive further information when your child arrives. The day will last from 8.40am to 3.00pm. We will provide food for pupils and they do not need to wear school uniform. 

The guidance from Government about self-isolating MUST be followed by EVERYONE. Currently, it stands as follows but may change. It is important that you follow this advice at all times.

  • If your CHILD has symptoms of fever or a continuous cough, they MUST NOT attend for a period 7 DAYS.
  • If anyone in your HOUSEHOLD has symptoms of fever or a continuous cough, your child MUST NOT attend for a period of 14 DAYS.

If your child or anyone in your household is experiencing any of the above, they MUST NOT attend the provision in line with the guidance above.

Free School Meals

If you are entitled to Free School Meals, we have attempted to contact you to arrange vouchers for you. This system has now been set up such that you will receive a supermarket voucher every Monday for the whole week. It should be used to purchase food for each child entitled to FSM for that week.

If you are entitled to FSM and haven't heard from us, of if you have any other queries, please contact fsm@whtc.co.uk and we will try and get back to you.

Exams

The Government has also announced that all GCSE and A Level exams will not take place this year. This will be devastating news to pupils, and especially those in Years 11, 12 and 13. The Government have said qualifications will be awarded through an alternative mechanism - some details have been published here by the Government. We will be in touch with pupils and advise them accordingly when we have more information in due course.

Home Learning

Pupils have some work to be getting on with. Their teachers will be in touch with them over the weeks ahead to provide them with more learning. Our website will shortly be updated with further information and resources that are available for home learning.
