Covid-19 Information for parents


Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, The Rissington School has been committed to supporting its families, providing both academic and wellbeing support for pupils and parents.  During the Summer Term, when the school was partially open, we were proud to be able to welcome back 90% of our pupils to spend some time in school! 

During the current lockdown the School and its Pre-School, Chipmunks, are open for Key Workers and Vulnerable pupils only. Learning for all other pupils will be provided remotely, and pupils will be supported in this by their class teacher during the day. 

Our Key Worker and Vulnerable provision will be located on the Upper Rissington Site for all pupils, regardless of the site they normally attend.  Core provision will run from 9.00am to 3.00pm, but our RASCAL before and after-school provision will continue to operate for Key Worker pupils only between 8 and 9 am, and between 3 and 5pm - these will be charged at £2 and £8 respectively.  Pupils attending these sessions will be supported in accessing the remote learning provided by teachers.  Criteria and forms for registering as a Key Worker for this provision are provided below, and these should be returned to keyworkers@greatrissington.gloucs.sch.uk .  Vulnerable families and pupils will be contacted by a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
