Please see link for Nucleus Arts Newletter full of some creative activities you can engage with from home – Nucleus Arts Newsletter

Please see our Sixth Form section of the website for further information on the Year 11 and  Year 13 transition.

Following the Government’s most recent Covid-19 update on Sunday 10th May it is important to note that there are no immediate changes in the education or child care provision made by schools.

Therefore, schools will continue to provide distance learning support for students and child care for Key Workers who have provided 24 hours notice of their intention to use the child care facility. 

 

As you will be aware, the government has announced the expectation that Secondary schools will begin a phased transition to school based learning during Term 6 for selected Year groups.

 

We are working closely with the Local Authorities and the Department For Education to ensure the most effective and safe return to school for students and staff. We will be in contact you shortly to update you on our plans.

 

Please continue to check your mailboxes and this website for updates.

Thank you for your continued support.

Key Worker Information

If any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility and is unable to provide childcare at home, you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing.

This means emailing office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or calling 0333 602115 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.

Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.
