The Prime Minister has announced that schools will close for the vast majority of students from Monday 23rd March. Smestow will remain open for the children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, teachers, nursery staff, delivery drivers) and vulnerable children (those with an Educational Health Care Plan, Children who are Looked After and those who have a Social Worker). Children who do not fall into any of these groups should remain at home with appropriate care.
We need parents who fall into any of the key worker categories to email us at email@example.com in relation to whether their child or children will be at school so we can ensure that there is appropriate staffing levels in the school.
School will remain closed for all others until further notice, we risk increasing the strain on the NHS if we accept children into school that do not fit into the above categories.
We have created an 'Indpendent Work' section on our website with work for each year group.
GCSE and A level exams will not take place this summer and instead will use a system of teacher predictions standardised by Ofqual.
All of these measures are intended to support the country’s fight to tackle Covid 19.
Please rest assured that your children remain our number one priority and we will do everything in our power to support them and you. Thank you for your support and understanding at this very difficult time.
