UPDATE: COVID-19 Response for Key Workers and Children Letter
In order to comply with our government’s social isolation strategy we have decided to minimise travel and contact by amalgamating two of our Reach South sites. UTC Plymouth students currently eligible for in school support will now meet and attend their sessions at: Plymouth Academy of Creative Arts , 22 Millbay Rd, Stonehouse, Plymouth PL1 3EG. This will start from Tuesday 24th March.
Please see attached letter for more information.

Update of Confirmation of Critical Worker Status
Late last night the Government announced the list of workers who are considered to be critical to the fight against COVID-19. If a parent works within one of these critical sectors they are entitled to ask schools to provide care for their children.
We have previously sent out information with a list of possible key workers that was incomplete. I would ask you to disregard the previous letter and work from the updated letter which is now attached.
UPDATE: 19/03/2020 14:00
As I am sure you are all aware, schools and colleges have been instructed to close from Monday 23rd March 2020. For those self isolating with immediate effect, learning will be delivered online. We will be closing the school building to students, except those who have parents working in the NHS and emergency services, or in any other position classed as a ‘key worker.’ Further details regarding this area will be published at a later date following on from Government communication. If you feel your child needs the option to be in school, please contact us via email@example.com

UPDATE: 18/03/2020 16:20
I am writing to further update you with regards to the current situation concerning the Coronavirus. Sixth Form students are now going to be working at home until further notice. For the time being, the school is still open to all other year groups. However, all students now have all the work they need both in electronic and hard copy form should it become necessary to close the school.
If you are collecting work for your child, please visit reception tomorrow (Thursday 19th March). If you have any other queries please contact reception at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jo Ware directly at email@example.com.
Further updates will continue to be sent out daily.
