Home Schooling Info

We have developed a remote education guide (see below). This will explain how we will support you if your child needs to continue their education at home- from isolating or through parental choice. 
 
As in all cases the class teacher will liaise with your directly to ensure we offer you all the support you and your child needs.

Coronavirus - General Guidance
 
The advice remains that the safest place for you and your family is at home. School remains open but we cannot mitigate all risks. We are continuing to adapt the local authority risk assessments to do everything we can to keep school as safe as we can. 
 
Contact: If you need to contact us please email admin@barndalehouse.northumberland.sch.uk - the phone isn't always manned.  
 
Visitors: The only visitors permitted to school are therapists, social workers, peripatetic workers and parents who are dropping off or collecting their child.
 
Meetings: EHCP (annual reviews) and meetings will continue, but be virtual.
 
Cleaning: Both school buildings continue to be thoroughly cleaned throughout the school day. 
 
School Transport: This is continuing with specific risk assessments adopted by the providers.
