COVID – 19

Our COVID – 19 Operational Guidance is a comprehensive document which we hope will answer many of the questions you may have about your child’s return to school. 

As well as our operational guidance we have included two more documents that you may like to read – Tameside transport risk assessment and Hawthorns school COVID -19 risk assessment – Full School Return.. 


Return to school information for parents/ carers


As our guidance document explains, at the start of term we will be following a recovery curriculum using the underpinning principles of Barry and Matthew Carpenter’s approach, The Recovery Curriculum. Barry Carpenter has worked with Books Beyond Words to publish two stories which can help children make sense of their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic, communicate their feelings and prepare for more change as they go back to the classroom.
