School closure

The school will be closed from Monday 23rd March until further notice. Supervision will only be provided where a place has already been agreed. These places are for children of key workers where there is no other option. The number of children and staff in school needs to be kept to a minimum to reduce the risk of these children becoming infected, thereby keeping their key worker parents safe and able to do their essential jobs. Other students need to stay at home and to ensure social distancing. We should not be socialising other than online. This will be tough, but we all need to do the right thing to slow the spread of COVID-19 transmission.

During this school closure, no student or staff member will be allowed in school other than the few that have been authorised. No parent or visitor will be allowed in school. This is essential to protect those children and staff who have no alternative but to be there.

Please contact Mr Findlater (FindlaterD@hanleycastlehs.org.uk) or Mrs Burrows (jburrows@hanleycastlehs.org.uk) if you are a key-worker parent who did not apply for a place but urgently requires emergency childcare provision.

Please see our posts below for guidance on how work will be set for students, and hints to support their mental health during this difficult time.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
