    School closure update – Sunday 22nd March

    For those students who will be attending school tomorrow (children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home), the normal school times apply – 8.30am to 2.55pm. Students are permitted to arrive from 8.20am onwards. On arrival, students should use the community entrance.

    If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. Many parents working in the sectors critical to the COVID-19 response may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

    For Key Stage 3 students who were absent last week and did not receive their resource packs, the packs will be available from reception from Monday 23rd March. There are also copies of the resources on our website (, where students can also access online learning and communicate with teachers.

    People can get in touch with the school via the normal routes and should check the website for information.

    To log in, use the 'Quick Links' menu (top right) and select RM Unify.

    Alternatively, click on the orange 'Remote Learning' bar on the TCA website homepage.

    You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. #StayHomeSaveLives
