Update on Coronavirus - Closure

18th March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

Following the announcement made by the Prime Minister at 5.15pm today Wednesday 18th March 2020, the college will close at 2.45pm this Friday, 20th March 2020 for the foreseeable future. However, schools have been asked to continue to provide education for the children of 'Key Workers', e.g. NHS workers, police, food delivery drivers, i.e. Sainsburys, Tesco etc.

This also applies to children with an EHCP or Social Worker. If you consider yourself to be a 'Key Worker' or have a child with an EHCP or Social Worker, and intend to send your child to College for the remaining 2 weeks of this Spring term, then please let us know by 3.00pm Thursday 19th March so that plans can be made.

Please email this information to laura.forrester@hayling.hants.sch.uk giving your 'Key Worker' role and the names of your child/children.

Further clarification will follow about vulnerable children who may also be entitled to attend school and we will contact those families direct in due course.

We will inform parents/carers in more detail, tomorrow, once we are clear, from the government, regarding guidance on school closures.

Colin Rainford
Head Teacher
