Current information on Covid-19
Current information on how The Sittingbourne School is reacting to the Covid-19 pandemic.
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One of the more obvious features of the COVID-19 outbreak is the pace at which any written update becomes out-of-date.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:
