October 2020 Announcement

Dear Parents/Guardian,

On Saturday, the Prime Minister announced plans to implement a four-week stay-at-home order starting on Thursday, 5 November 2020, and running until Wednesday, 2 December 2020. Nottingham and Nottinghamshire entered Tier 3 restrictions from the early hours of Friday 30th October.  

This second national lockdown is very different for schools/colleges than the first one in March. The Government wants schools, colleges, and universities to stay open. For now, we remain in Tier 3, and schools, colleges, and universities remain open.

From Thursday 5th November, the rules of the stay at home order are expected to allow you to leave your home for work, if you cannot work from home, and education. All schools and college buildings will therefore remain open to students and staff.

Your child/ren should continue to attend Shiefton Supplementary School in line with the timetable and as directed by the Management Committee. 

You may be aware, staff and students are allowed to travel into and out of a Tier 3 area, for work, education purposes, registered childcare or youth services, and to meet caring responsibilities.

We are still awaiting further information and we will update you accordingly. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Take care,

Kind regards
