Dear Parent/Carer,

In light of the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) outbreak, Government guidelines state that from Monday 23rd March 2020, if it is at all possible for children to be at home then they should be.

A list of key workers as defined by the Government are detailed here:

  • National Health Service
  • Armed forces
  • Teachers and childcare staff
  • Care home workers
  • Social workers
  • Police officers, community support, civilian staff
  • Prison officer or other probation staff
  • Firefighters
  • Local authority planners
  • Environmental health officers
  • Highway Agency traffic officers

You may be asked to provide evidence of your Key Worker status such as a recent payslip or bank statement.

May we also remind you that if you or any member of your household develops symptoms associated with the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) disease, then you should all self-isolate for 14-days. Please refer to the Government guidelines, the most up-to-date of which can be found on the Government website (

With our very best wishes,
Mrs J Langley

  • FAO all parents: TMBC has launched a dedicated helpline 0161 342 8355 for anyone that is struggling or needs help and advice during this time.
  • Please don’t get drawn into giving your bank details to anyone claiming via email, text or social media that they can get you FSM vouchers; there are several scams going around. If and when this system is secure we will contact you. In the meantime, we are offering support direct from school with food packages for those entitled to FSM.
  • Thank you for all you are doing to keep things going at home for our students and to respect the current instructions. If you are educating at home at this time we are sending you some tips and some timetabling templates to help give some structure. You can also follow the children’s existing timetables if that helps and where there is a subject that you might not have the right resources for or can’t easily cover (eg technology or maybe drama?) get them researching “careers related to technology/drama/textiles” etc instead!
    Keep up the good work!
    Mrs Langley
