2 April 2020 – School Update

‘Last resort childcare for eligible children’

Hetton School is currently closed with no students attending. For those Parents / Carers with ‘eligible students’ who need to access school for example Keyworkers, LAC and students with an EHCP, this should be an absolute last resort but if you need to send your child(ren) into school week commencing (13.04.20) can you please let us know by 11:30am on Thursday (09.04.2020). We will reissue this message on a weekly basis in line with Government guidelines.


Free School Meals

Information was received last week by the government regarding the FSM voucher scheme. We are currently in the process of sorting the FSM vouchers out and we are aiming for them to be issued after the Easter holiday period.


Home Learning

Over the next two weeks students would normally be having a Easter break. Therefore during this time we don’t expect students to be completing day-to-day work. However, these are highly unusual times and we want to support you as parents keeping your children occupied and engaged. As a result we have started adding project and fun learning tasks onto our ClassCharts system that are there for you if and when you need them. Day-to-day learning will return on Monday 20th April, and before then we will update you on how student learning will look in the summer term.

If you are experiencing issues regarding home learning please contact the school and we can contact the correct member of staff to be able to support your needs. If paper copies are required for students who have issues with internet access or who are having difficulties, please contact the school and we will come back to you in a timely manner. The platform that our staff will be using to engage and set work will be Classcharts however we do want to be able to reasonably support your child(ren) if they are experiencing difficulties.
