Collingwood Coronavirus Information

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to inform you that, Collingwood School and Media Arts College will be open on Monday 23rd March. We have looked at projected pupil numbers and staffing levels and I am confident that the school can remain safely open at present. However, the situation is changing daily.

These are unprecedented times and I will endeavour to ensure that Collingwood remains open whenever possible. To remain open, this does mean that the curriculum model will be redesigned and classes may be grouped together. We will continue to deliver, where possible, specialist teaching but may revert to a class based model with independent learning packs for pupils to work through at their own pace.

If you decide that your child would be safer at home, we fully understand and support this decision. We will provide work packs for them to complete and if your child receives Free School Meals we will provide “Grab Bags” – please contact us to arrange collection / delivery.

I will post regular updates about the changing situation on the school website and please do not hesitate to contact me. We are a community at Collingwood and need to continue to support each other during these uncertain times.

Thank you once again for support.
Please take care and keep safe.
