  • SECAT UPDATE 10/05/20

    Published 10/05/20
    The plan that the Prime Minister set out on Sunday evening, stipulates that the same 5 rules still apply and previous restrictions will also apply for our schools.
    The schools will remain closed.
    The provision in our Richmond Avenue primary and Shoeburyness High secondary Hubs, will continue from tomorrow. As instructed by the DfE, these provisions remain open ONLY for essential and previously identified pupils of KEY WORKERS, and VULNERABLE pupils. 
    Until the next announcement by the Prime Minister, nothing has therefore changed for our schools.
