Important News for Parents/Carers
All parents have now been contacted with regards to keeping children at home who currently have medical needs as highlighted in the government guidance.
Many parents have already made the decision to keep children home and self isolate.
The government are advising :
(Guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision)
“If at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be”
We do want to offer support, however you must appreciate we will have a skeleton staff as we have to support our own staff who have children and/or vulnerable family members at home.
We have already contacted all parents who are key workers to offer support. However if there are any other parents who feel they need this support, could you contact school ASAP.
We must stress that spaces will be limited, as this does depend on staffing. However, we will keep this in constant review. As a priority we have to continually evaluate that we are able to safely run school allowing us to meet the needs of all pupils who attend.
At this point, school is closed for all pupils, with the exception of those pupils whose parents have already been contacted and require a place.
As we are able to increase numbers, we will inform parents.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation with this.
Bamburgh School is maintained by South Tyneside Education Authority for pupils whose special needs cover a broad spectrum of medical, physical, social, emotional and moderate learning difficulties.
At Bamburgh we aim above all to improve the outcomes for our pupils. In our very special school, this must be achieved through a combination of challenge and nurture. Our school ethos recognises the needs of the whole child, whilst moving pupils towards their personal best. We feel strongly that progress must be measured holistically with independence standing alongside achievement – each building on the other.
Creative, challenging and imaginative lessons are at the heart of what we strive to deliver. The provision of a school environment which allows academic achievement and independence to flourish is an important part of our curriculum offer.
If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
