Covid & Remote Learning

We are working hard to keep school as safe as possible during the Covid pandemic. Please refer to information below or contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.


Please note that during the pandemic and winter months we are relaxing uniform restrictions to allow pupils to wear additional layers of clothing since we are keeping windows open to allow for addiitonal air flow. Where pupils are wearing hoodies, they should still respect school rules and not wear hoods up inside please. Please do speak to your child's keyworker or contact the office for more advice.


You will find lots of useful information below but please do ask if you would like to know any more.

The Government has published guidance for the full opening of schools. This can be found using the link below. 


Please note that the contact information below for any safeguarding issues or general concerns out of hours.

Covid Catch Up Plans


We have been fortunate enough to remain open to most pupils for most of the time during national school lockdowns. However, we are aware that most pupils have missed learning due to staff illness, self isolation and organisational issues. Some newly referred pupils missing a signficant amount of learning before joining the PRS.


Staff and pupils are working extremely hard to catch up on any missed learning and we have robust plans in place to make sure this happens.


Year 11 pupils will receive the very best careers guidance and support to prepare them for making choices about post-16 options and apprenticeships. 


We are also concerned about the mental health and well-being of our pupils at this difficult time and are making sure that this is factored into all planning. Pupils are getting regular breaks for physical activity and we are making sure that well-being activities are added into the timetable.


We have received a little funding from the government and this is how we are using it to support our current pupils. Check out the Covid catch up funding plan for more information.

Asymptomatic Testing in School


The PRS has its own Covid test centre staffed by fully trained staff using COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow tests’.

Along with the other protective measures we are taking, these tests will help staff and students to remain in school safely. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus experience no symptoms. By testing, we will help to stop the virus spread and help to keep our school community safe. 

We started testing all staff and students who want to participate from week commencing 4 January 2021. Staff are tested twice weekly and, in line with current government advice, pupils are now tested on return to school after a period of absence.
