Covid 19 Catch up Funding 20/21

The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up.

Alt Bridge School remains open to all students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand that COVID-19 continues to create disruption to the education of our pupils and our aim is to minimise that disruption as much as possible whilst creating an environment with reduced risks of cross-transmission. Within this page, you will find the latest version of our whole school risk assessment which outlines the measures taken to manage the risk of COVID-19 within our setting. As a school we follow the guidance of Public Health England and also the Infection Prevention and Control Team locally. We are in contact with these partners and our Local Authority Link Officer if and when cases of COVID-19 are confirmed amongst our school population. We also follow the guidance from the Department for Education. This guidance can be found at Publications Guidance  below

Coronavirus: Merseyside added to watchlist as 'area of concern'

The UK is currently in lockdown due to the COVID-19 virus. Schools closed in March to all but those students who required child care arrangements in place. Alt Bridge School continues to provide child care arrangements to students who require this provision due to their parents/carers being key workers or due to reasons regarding individual vulnerabilities. The letter below outlines these details in full;  Please read the attached letter Parent_carer key information.

We are, as always, concerned for the welfare of our students and as such we hope you will find a range of options available to enable students to learn, stay safe and maintain good mental health and wellbeing during this difficult time.  

We continue to remain up-to-date with the latest advice and information released by the Government.   We are now in the process of drawing up risk assessments for every student in line with recent government guidance regarding students with EHCPs. This will involve looking carefully at their EHCP outcomes and how we can provide ways to meet these needs and to support their progress during this time. We will be contacting all parents and carers to discuss the provision that we can offer our students and how we hope to support them until we are able to re-open fully again. 
The health and safety of our students and staff is our greatest priority during this time. We hope that our whole school community remain safe and well and are able to access the support they need from school. In your child is entitled to free school meals, please also read the guidance in the letter below;    Please read the attached letter  Free School Meal Vouchers.
Our staff will continue to contact families regularly to offer support and guidance.  We hope that families will let us know if there is anything they need to support them at home. The letter above entitled ‘Parent_carer key information’ also details some of the additional interventions that can be accessed by students remaining home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope that each of our families remain safe and well during this time.
