Covid-19 Update

Latest information and updates


We are continually being guided by the UK Government and other organisations in our decision making to ensure the safe return of all of our pupils to School. The content on these pages provides information on our policies, procedures and the systems that are in place to ensure pupils can continue working remotely during lockdown. This information will be updated regularly as new advice is given and guidance changes.

 

Information for parents


Parents received guides outlining the measures the School is taking. The Online Learning Guidance eBooklet, which can be found on The Hub, sets out all the information your child will need to continue their learning from home.

We will do our utmost to support all of our pupils to ensure that their learning and wellbeing are maintained over the coming weeks. 

We understand that this period can be an unsettling time for pupils and if anyone requires emotional support, please contact katherine.bloomfield@hullcollegiateschool.co.uk.

Ongoing pastoral support will be available through Heads of Year and form tutors.
