MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
Following the rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus and further ‘lock down’ announced by Boris Johnson – Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March 2020, PCHS&C has fully supported the Government statement that every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. As such our student numbers in school dropped significantly in the days following this announcement, and from w/c 30th March, school will now only be open on a Tuesday and Friday for previously identified students (including children of Critical Workers), and closed on all other days. This 2-day arrangement is likely to stay in place for the remainder of the lock-down’ period – which none of us currently know for how long this will be. We will also be closing school for the full two weeks over Easter, as originally planned.
We appreciate this situation is extremely difficult and challenging for everyone – not least yourself as parents and carers. We will keep updating our website with ideas you may like to try with your child to keep them both learning and entertained.
Please note that all staff (including key staff) continue to work at home when not in school, so if you require any specific help or support, please feel free to contact us using the form below, and we will ensure this gets passed to the correct member of staff for them to respond accordingly.
Many thanks as always for your understanding in this unprecedented situation. Please keep yourself and your family safe.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Families that are entitled to free school meals can access the online Edenred service, allowing them to place orders for supermarket gift cards. These are worth £15 a week per child and families receive codes by email to redeem.
Which supermarkets are included? Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Waitrose and M&S are signed up to the scheme currently and more supermarkets are expected to join – this involves them having the right infrastructure to deliver gift cards.
How do parents to redeem their code? Once they have received their codes parents can visit the redemption website to redeem their code. Edenred has put an online queuing system in place due to the very high demand on this part of the service.
