We are following Government guidelines. We are providing a safe environment into which pupils can return in line with Government scheduling. We are also pleased to provide a strong remote learning provision for those unable to return to school or in the event of school closure. Information for parents on this can be found here for Trent College and here for The Elms. The school has a dynamic full risk assessment covering the return of pupils and staff to the site in the Covid-19 environment, summary details of which can be found here.
