I am worried about my child coming into school- can they work from home? 

We understand that parents/carers and students may be anxious about attending school, but in line with Government guidance students who can attend school must continue to do so and absences will not be authorised unless a student is unwell or self isolating. We are unable to provide remote work for students who are not attending school but not self-isolating. If you wish to discuss your child's attendance, please email attendance@kingsschoolhove.org.uk and one of our pastoral team will get back to you. 

 

My child is feeling anxious about being in school- what should I do?
