Message from The Sittingbourne School

For the health and safety of our students and staff, The Sittingbourne School is currently segregated into year-group bubbles and zoned areas across the school site.  

We strongly advise that all students wear masks in communal areas, and students must wear masks when travelling to and from school on buses and trains.

Please use the links below for NHS advice on symptoms, isolating and when and how to get tested, as well as detailed guidance for parents from the Department for Education.

Keeping children safe online

The government has published new guidance to support you and your children in ensuring that you are able to stay safe on the internet during this extended time away from school. Children's charities have raised concerns regarding children's exposure to inappropriate internet content and the risk of online grooming due to the length of time children have been away from school. The guidance explains what the risks are and gives links to organisations that can give you further information and support. This guidance will consolidate the learning students have completed in character education regarding this subject.

If you have concerns about keeping safe on the internet and would like to speak to a member of staff please contact the school and ask for Mr Ball or the DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) on duty.

How to wash your hands properly 


One of the more obvious features of the COVID-19 outbreak is the pace at which any written update becomes out-of-date.  For that reason, I would refer you to the following sources:
