We would like to thank the whole Loughborough Schools Foundation community for its continued cooperation and support during the ongoing challenges posed by the coronavirus.
Loughborough Schools Foundation is following the advice provided by Public Health England and these FAQs will be updated in line with that advice.
What should I do if my child tests positive for Covid-19?
Please provide the following details to your child's School / Nursery, using the dedicated email addresses below.
- Name and Form
- Date the symptoms started
- Date of Covid-19 test
How will buildings be cleaned throughout the day?
Hand sanitiser will be placed inside each building entry door and will be available in each classroom and office.
Banisters, door handles, light switches etc. will be cleaned throughout the day.
Toilets and sinks will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.
What plans are you putting in place for continuity of teaching during the school closure?
All Foundation School's have transitioned to remote learning. With the support of your child’s teachers, lessons are continuing with learning at home.
The curriculum is supported by a wide range of instructional online tools and platforms and these platforms will be used for continuity of teaching. Firefly is the primary portal for setting work. Teaching staff do however using a range of teaching methods in order to provide variety in their lessons and some pupils will also have access to video content and webinars.
We recognise that the education that normally occurs in a classroom cannot be replicated at home and so the focus is always on ensuring students participate in educationally beneficial activities. Students would continue with their daily timetable and we recommend that they stick to normal school lesson timings to carry out their remote learning in order to benefit from maintaining a routine.
As part of a remote learning programme, students would be required to submit work electronically to their teachers.
Form Tutors and teaching staff will always continue to be contactable via email during a campus closure and we recommend that students check their school emails twice a day.
My son/daughter is anxious about missing school, who can they discuss this with?
Please make contact in the first instance with your child’s Form Tutor or Head of Year via email. They will then be in touch with you directly to provide guidance and support to your child.
I have a school visit booked, will this be going ahead?
The Admissions teams remain contactable (01509 278101) to answer any questions, discuss assessments and process all applications.

The health and wellbeing of our staff, pupils and visitors is our key priority and in light of the ongoing nature of the coronavirus situation, we have suspended personal school tours for the period of this current National Lockdown. We shall look to welcome people back to the campuses as soon as we are able.
We are delighted however to be able to offer the opportunity to explore our schools with a virtual visit.
What precautions can we take?
We advise all members of the Loughborough Schools Foundation to continue to follow advice from Public Health England and the NHS.
