 Who are vulnerable children? 

Children who have a social worker or those with special education needs or an educational health and care plan (EHCP) are considered to be vulnerable children. Children from outside those two groups will have to remain at home with appropriate care. There is no need to register as we have already identified all students that are in this group.

Students who may have difficulty engaging with remote education at home (for example due to a lack of devices or quiet space to study) are also identified as vulnerable students, so please contact this if it applies to your child

If you have any concerns you can contact us by email – covid@sirjohnthursby.lancs.sch.uk
