Updates for Parents and Pupils (Work At Home)

The school follows all advice and guidance issued by UK Government. Our priority has always been to keep pupils safe and healthy. Please find below some information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and advice from the Government.

The School is Closed

Mercia School is officially closed to all pupils from Thursday 26 March 2020 until further notice. Please be assured that support is still available to you, but not through Mercia School directly.

Mercia pupils whose parents are ‘key workers’ or pupils who are considered as vulnerable, will be directed by the school to localised hubs where school provision can be arranged. This means your child will go to another school during this difficult period. 

 If you are in desperate need of school provision, please contact us via Ideally, we need forty-eight hours notice, as deployment of staff would be required and arrangements with local hubs need to be made. Please remember attending school is a last resort.

Mercia School will continue to stay in contact will all our pupils and families. Staff will call and/or email on a regular basis. 

Pupils & Working at Home

Whilst at home, pupils must continue to work hard. It is vital that the extra work booklets, handed out or posted this week, are completed to a high standard. Furthermore, we will be posting a homework booklet to homes and there is advice/tasks from subjects leaders below to ensure all pupils are still learning whilst they are not in school. It is vital pupils stay in clear routines and habits. Pupils should follow their timetable as normal.

A clear set of guidelines (link above) have been sent to all households with clear instructions on how pupils can be getting on with valuable work. Please email the senior team, curriculum leaders or mastery tutors if you have any queries about this pack or any work. 

Free School Meals (FSM)

If you are entitled to Free School Meals, we have attempted to contact you to arrange vouchers for you. This system has now been set up and a letter has been sent to all parents/carers outlining how to access the vouchers.

If you are entitled to FSM and haven't heard from us, or if you have any other queries, please contact and we will get back to you.
