Covid-19 Update

Following the Government’s most recent Covid-19 update on Sunday 10th May it is important to note that there are no immediate changes in the education or child care provision made by schools.

Therefore, schools will continue to provide distance learning support for students and child care for Key Workers who have provided 24 hours notice of their intention to use the child care facility. 

 

As you will be aware, the government has announced the expectation that Secondary schools will begin a phased transition to school based learning during Term 6 for selected Year groups.

 

We are working closely with the Local Authorities and the Department For Education to ensure the most effective and safe return to school for students and staff. We will be in contact you shortly to update you on our plans.

 

Please continue to check your mailboxes and this website for updates.


Thank you for your continued support.

 

Further information on the free school meals scheme can be found here: https://www.edenred.co.uk/Documents/DfE/DfE_FreeSchoolMeals_ParentCarerFAQs.pdf

 

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping students at home wherever possible.  Please note that because of staffing plans, parents of key workers should email office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or call 03333 602120 by 9am the day before to be eligible for provision the next day.
