We hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and well during these difficult times. As you know, the government directed all schools to close on 20th March 2020 other than to provide emergency childcare.  The government guidance states: ‘We have asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children of workers critical to the COVID-19 response who absolutely need to attend.’ There is also provision where a risk assessment deems it is better for a child with an Education Health and Care Plan or one with an assigned Social Worker to attend.  The government’s message is very clear:

children should stay at home if at all possible - #StayHomeSaveLives

We are currently able to offer emergency childcare for those eligible which is open 8.00-4.00 Monday to Friday. >>Click here for more information, including important contact numbers. 

NHGS remains committed to safeguarding. During the lockdown period, students are likely to be spending more time online. Here are two important links to a government reporting tool and Home Office guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. >>Click here for more information and access to the links.
