Latest Update

Further to the government announcement on 30 December 2020 and the subsequent broadcast at 8pm on Monday 4th January 2020, the start of our term was delayed for students with a phased return from Tuesday 5th January 2021.  This delayed opening was to allow us time to comply with Covid testing.

Our priority remains to keep all our students and staff safe and healthy.

Our provision during this current lockdown will be similar to that initially provided during Phase 1 of the lockdown (March 2020), however, this will be reviewed on a weekly basis.  In addition to some students continuing to access school/college/residential, the Therapy/Clinical Services team will also support our remote service alongside an ongoing e-learning resource which will be available to all students.

As an educational provision, we are endeavouring to balance the wider social, emotional, wellbeing and learning needs of all, set against maintaining the excellent strategies we have maintained thus far with regards to Covid 19.

We will review our offer on a weekly basis to ensure the safety of all students and staff can be maintained within their individual classes/learning bubbles.

We are conducting COVID flow testing and providing social stories and visual timetables to support our 11 + age students’ access to COVID tests.  With students’ individual therapy needs continuing to be supported.

We continue to remain vigilant by encouraging high levels of cleanliness particularly with handwashing.
