Free School Meals Scam
Posted - 27 March 2020
Please be aware that some families who are entitled to free school meals have been targeted by a scam asking them to pass over their bank details. Parents/carers have been sent an email, allegedly from the Department of Education (DoE), which says: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’. The government issued a warning urging people not to fall for it. Guidance from the DoE states: ‘We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.’
Please ensure that you follow the above advice.

Coronavirus Update - Headteachers Letter
Posted - 20 March 2020
Re: Coronavirus update - school closure
Following on from my last update, I’m now writing to let you know that we have been instructed to close the school after this Friday until further notice.
As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, social workers/supermarket worker/delivery drivers,teachers,and postal workers others in frontline services) and children with certain needs. We are waiting for government to publish more information on what this means, but it would help us in the meantime if you would let us know if you think your child may fall into one of these categories – please refer to communication sent out by Mrs M O’Neill Assistant Headteacher.
All other children will need to stay at home, so we ask that you do not send your child into school from Monday onwards.
Please note that this is a national closure – as you may have heard in the news – so while it is a challenging situation, we are not alone. We’ll re-open fully as soon as we can and will let you know when this is by the text/school website/school official social media
What we’ll continue doing while your child is at home Your child’s learning is of course important to us, so we’ll continue to help your child to learn.
If your child usually receives free school meals we will also be in touch with more information about how we will provide this, with support from a scheme that the government will announce.
If you want to get in touch to share your concerns, please don’t hesitate to do this via school email address firstname.lastname@example.org
And remember: if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111online.
Thank you again for your continued support, and we will be in touch with more information when we can.
Mr T McGuinness Headteacher
Student Work Packs

All Saints is currently still open. We will be providing packs of work for all students in years 7 to 10. These will be sent home with students who are onsite today and available for collection today and Friday from 9.30am to 1.00pm at the library door for the parents/carers of students not onsite today.
Year 11 and sixth form students already have access to all materials online and have been provided with a laptop where necessary.
Unfortunately we are not allowed to visit any families who are self isolating - please make arrangements for someone to collect the packs on your behalf. Alternatively a version of the packs will be available on the website from next week.
