Covid & Remote Learning

We are working hard to keep school as safe as possible during the Covid pandemic.  Currently Craven PRS is open as usual.  Pupils are required to wear masks in public areas as face coverings help protect the wearer and others against the spread of infection because they cover the mouth adn nose, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of Covid-19. Please refer to information below or contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.


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 update (December 2021) can be found using the link below.

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


Testing remains important in reducing the risk of transmission of infection within schools. Staff and secondary school pupils should continue to test twice weekly at home, with lateral flow device (LFD) test kits, 3-4 days apart. Testing remains voluntary but is strongly encouraged. There is no need for primary age pupils (those in year 6 and below) to test. Secondary schools should also retain a small asymptomatic testing site (ATS) on-site until further notice so they can offer testing to pupils who are unable to test themselves at home. Schools are strongly encouraged to ask parents and other visitors to take a lateral flow device (LFD) test before entering the school.
