During the period of national lockdown, in line with Government guidance, school will remain open to vulnerable children and young people and the children of critical workers only. All other pupils will receive remote education.
Pupils who are self- isolating should not attend school. Clinically extremely vulnerable pupils are also advised not to attend school.

Critical Workers
Children with at least one parent or carer who is a critical worker can go to school if required, but parents and carers should keep  their children at home if they can.
Please could all parents who qualify as a critical worker ensure they have completed this Google Form as soon as possible by following this link:

Vulnerable Children

Parents/carers of vulnerable children are encouraged to take up the offer of a school place. The definition of vulnerable children and young people includes children who have a social worker, an education, health and care plan (EHCP) or who may be vulnerable for another reason at local discretion (“otherwise vulnerable”).


In order to support school planning and associated risk assessments, parents are required to inform school via the booking system of their request for a school place for their child.

Please phone the school office on 01287 640613 to book your place by 12pm (noon) by Friday the week before. If you have provided us with your set work patterns these have already been recorded so you do not need to book on a weekly basis however, if your working pattern varies or you wish to book additional sessions these must be booked or children cannot attend school.

All NPCAT schools will continue with our commitment to provide wrap around provision for vulnerable children and children of critical workers. School is open from 7.30am and Breakfast Club places should be booked via ParentPay in advance.

School will offer afterschool provision every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.00pm – 4.30pm. Places should be booked in advance via ParentPay.

FS1 wraparound care with a school lunch (£9.60) and with a packed lunch (£7.50), 30 hours with a school lunch (£4.10) and with a packed lunch (£2.00) also need to be booked via ParentPay in advance.
