COVID -19 update
Re’ School Closure (Students and Parents/Carers)
All schools in the UK have now received notice to close due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) from Friday 20th March 2020.
We will aim to deliver the school timetable via Classcharts and/or Google Classroom. Students should log in to either of these platforms and find the work relating to the subject and lesson they are timetabled to have if they were in school. They should follow their usual timetable in this way for the duration of the closure notice.
Details on how to log in to classcharts has already been sent via group call to parents and students.
Staff will set work by uploading worksheets and powerpoints for students to complete. Staff will be able to respond to emails on their work email account only. If email addresses are not known, please email email@example.com and your message will be forwarded to relevant member of staff. The same is also true for any student concerns and wellbeing matters; please contact the relevant person in pastoral or email the aforementioned address. Staff are unable to use their personal phones and email addresses to contact students and parents/carers.
If any student forgets their passwords to online facilities or has technical difficulties in accessing the sites, such as gmail, Google Classroom, Classcharts, Mathswatch, Tassimai, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the IT Team will respond to you.
Students should check their school email address (for example ST16bloggsj@stanway.school) and/or log into their Google Classroom app to check for any work that has been set on Google Classroom.
The school website will have update information added on a regular basis and other communication will be delivered via Group Call messages.
It is important during this time that we ensure we are looking after ourselves and each other. Please see the presentation below on ideas on what you can do.
Coronavirus and your wellbeing
You might be worried about coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and how it could affect your life. This may include being asked to stay at home or avoid other people.
This might feel difficult or stressful. But there are lots of things you can try that could help your wellbeing.

- you’re feeling anxious or worried about coronavirus

The NHS has advice about self-isolation in English and advice about self-isolation in Welsh. For how long to self-isolate, see the current government advice in English or the current government advice in Welsh.
And it covers:
