Please click here for all latest news and useful information for students and parents.   Most of our students may be working from home but the SJBC community is very much "open for business!"

We are pleased that we have been able to open the school to more students over the past week or so.  Sadly due to government restrictions we are still only allowed to welcome 25% of our year 10/12 students on site at any one time.  Year 10s have been invited in on the basis of need, with some of them, who have been engaging well online, not being able to come in at this stage.  We do hope that we are in a position to welcome them, and indeed all of our students back soon.

We also remain open for children who are vulnerable and/or children of key workers who cannot find alternative childcare arrangements.  These places have been confirmed in advance with parents.  For all our other students we are continuing to provide our online offer.

That said, the school community is very much 'open for business' and lessons are continuing online and students should be studying hard. Teachers  are setting work for all students online via  Microsoft Teams and will keep in touch with their classes through this facility to ensure that all of our students stay connected and engaged with their learning.  

We ask all parents to support us by checking that your child has been able to access the online materials and is working through them.  It would be helpful if parents take a few minutes to read through the information below to familiarise themselves with what's on offer.

Everyone is having to learn how to adapt to this situation and the challenges of social distancing can be particularly difficult for children, adolescents and families. We've added a link below to a useful guide on how to support your children through this period called 'the parents guide to coping with school closures'.  We are grateful to to making this resource available to us for free.
