Who Can Attend Onsite Provision at NGA?
Vulnerable Pupils (including all pupils in the Alternative Curriculum Group) 

Vulnerable Pupils (including all pupils in the Alternative Curriculum Group) should attend.

Parents and carers of these pupils were all contacted on Monday 4 January and Tuesday 5 January 2021.

If they do not attend their absence will be recorded as ‘condoned’ (C code) and someone from the school safeguarding team will be in periodic contact to check on their wellbeing.

Children of Critical Workers 

Children of Critical Workers are welcome to attend.

However, please remember that the reason for school closures and the national lockdown is to reduce the transmission of the virus by reducing everyone's social contacts. The provision in schools for Critical Worker's children is to allow Critical Workers to do their critical work. It is not to supervise children just because they might work better at school (because would be true for all pupils) when they could actually work from home. Please only register for this provision if you absolutely require it.

To help with capacity planning, parents of critical workers will be asked to register on a weekly basis – completing the online registration form no later than midday on the Friday of each week prior to provision being required. 

To register, please complete the appropriate registration form on our:
