Wherever it is safe to do so according to our Covid-19 Safeguarding Policy, we are encouraging pupils to return to school. However, to reduce community transmission and keep pupils and their families safe, most students are following our remote curriculum.
We are aware that thousands of pupils are in enforced self-isolation and that thousands more children are missing out on school because of positive Covid-19 tests in their midst and school closures.
At NWKAPS we are encouraging all pupils to return to school and are working very closely with our parents, carers and students to consider where it is safe to do so.
Following government guidelines we are operating a testing system in school for all students and staff.
We have ensured that all possible safety measures have been put in place in school which include sanitizing stations, one way systems and bubbles for our pupils and staff.
After months of disrupted education we are aware of the impact this is having on pupil well-being and mental health. Our remote learning provision has been designed to ensure that both teaching of academic subjects and pastoral support are readily available. For pupils attending school we are able to offer our full pastoral and well-being care in addition to a full teaching timetable.
You can speak to any member of staff at NWKAPS if you have concerns. If you are concerned for your wellbeing, your mental health or feel unsafe then we ask you to contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads immediately.
If you have concerns out of school hours then please see our safeguarding page for emergency contact information.
