during school closure

During the period of school closure due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) the safety and wellbeing of our pupils and

families at Lavington is paramount.  We understand that this is a very unsettling time for everyone but we are still here to help should you need it.

As you are aware some of our students work very closely with the pastoral team and it is important for their emotional wellbeing that they also feel supported and have access to speak to someone. Therefore, we will be putting advice on show my homework and the school mobile number for any students who need that support.  If you feel this is something that they will benefit from please contact me and I will make sure contact is made with them.

Students with SEND should be following the advice given to other students and if have medical conditions, seek the advice of their GP or 111.  We are unable to give further advice on exams or access arrangements at this time.

Meetings will be cancelled until further notice.
