Whilst the school is closed, our duty and responsibility to safeguarding our pupils remains. Throughout this period, we will continue to check in on your child just as if the school was open.
A member of school staff will call to check-in with you each week, and to speak to your child. If you have any safeguarding concerns whilst the school is closed, for your child or for any other pupil from the school, please contact the school office (01543 548700) in the first instance or in an emergency Jane Elliker, Designated Safeguarding Lead email@example.com
If you need to contact the school nurse, please email Specialschools.firstname.lastname@example.org
This inbox will be monitored each day and emails forwarded to the appropriate person.
Rocklands School is a supportive community where parents and carers, school staff, governors and wider professionals all work together in the best interests of your children. I know we all share together the wish that all of us remain safe though out this difficult period of time.

Ant and Dec, David Walliams and the , from the Department for Education, will be joining us to help make the assembly a success. The DfE will also promote the assembly beforehand to ensure we reach as many people as possible.
