Following the announcement from the Prime Minister, I can confirm learning for our students is now online apart for students who are identified as Key Worker or Vulnerable students who should attend school. 

All work will be set inline with student's current timetables and staff will be online on TEAMS during the times of the timetabled lesson to support your child's learning. 

In school there will be provision for vulnerable students and students of key workers. Students accessing this provision will need to attend school at the normal time for their bubble (see below).

 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

COVID Testing in School

We are currently in the process of planning COVID testing in school. We hope to have this up and running in the near future.  Next week we will be sending home a registration and consent form that you will need to fill in so that your child can be tested in school. We will update you with our plans when we are able to confirm them.

Please do not send your child to school if...

  • You have been contacted by the school or track and trace and told that your child needs to self-isolate
  • Any member of your household has tested positive, in which case your child and other members of your household must isolate for 14 days from when the person who tested positive showed their first symptoms or when they tested positive (if they were asymptomatic - not showing symptoms)
  •  If your child or any member of your household is showing symptoms - in which case you must arrange a test and all members of the household self-isolate until you receive the results
