The St John Bosco College building is closed to most of our students until further notice but lessons are continuing online and all students should still be studying hard!
Sadly the St John Bosco College building is closed most of our students until further notice. We are only operating a limited on-site offer to a small number of identified students. This is 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 other students please ensure that you follow government instructions and keep them safely at home.
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.
Parents of children receiving the Free School Meal allowance should now have heard from the Local Authority, via a company called Wonde, about the voucher scheme to replace free school meals while the school is closed. Please let us know if you haven't heard from them.
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 www.theparentsguideto.co.uk to making this resource available to us for free.
