Temporary School Closure
Most children will learn remotely until AT LEAST the February half term. In line with Government guidance only vulnerable children and the children of critical workers are currently attending onsite provision.
Although our nursery provision remains open, numbers are restricted due to staff absence and other factors in our risk assessment. If you would like your child to attend, please make an enquiry via email@example.com. We will notify you when we are able to offer your child a place.
Please now also use this email address if you are a critical worker who needs to access our provision as our online registration form is now closed.
Increasing data allowances on mobile devices
The Government has launched a scheme to enable schools to get increased data allowances for mobile phones. It covers the following phone networks; Three, Smarty, Virgin Mobile, EE, Tesco Mobile, Sky Mobile and O2. It can be applied for if pupils:
- do not have fixed broadband at home
- cannot afford additional data for their devices
- are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education
Bonner will need to apply for you and will need some information from you and your permission to share this information/data with those that are running the scheme.
If you would like us to apply for this scheme for you please email Ajid Ali, a member of our admin team on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will support you with an application.

Support for parents
Since the recent announcement of schools being closed, it has meant a lot of sudden changes for parents which can have an impact on mental wellbeing. Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies is offering a series of two free webinars to support parents during these uncertain times.
Managing my self-care as a parent during lockdown
Tuesday, 2 February 2021 at 4pm
Self-care can be commonly forgotten as a parent especially due to the current uncertainties. This webinar aims to act as a refresher and reminder of the importance of self-care and how to ensure parents make time for themselves.
Please note, this webinar is only available to parents who have a registered address plus a registered GP in the Borough.
