Statement from Warwickshire County Council’s Specialist Transport Team

20th May 2020

Warwickshire Transport have offered this clarification regarding how we will manage student transport with social distancing as more children return to school.

They are limiting transport to 1 student per taxi, larger vehicles may be able to take more if distancing is possible.

They want to encourage parents/carers to transport children themselves and claim Travel Allowance – this will relieve network pressure and reduce the number of people children come into contact with.

Because of social distancing and transport staff unavailability in some cases,  it is essential that parents/carers are informed that there is no guarantee their child will be conveyed by their normal transport or with the usual people, but that the council will make every effort to accommodate pupil/parents/carers wishes, where possible.

Exhall Grange celebrates VE Day

May 2020

In the week leading up to VE Day 2020, pupils and staff worked together to create bunting to celebrate the special 75th Anniversary day.

A special thanks to Ms Martin, Miss Jones and Mrs Worwood who delivered the bunting to raise the spirits of the self-isolating elderly and needy in Bedworth.

As you can see, our bunting made its way on to a Harringtons Heritage coach!

Lenny’s Home Learning Project on World War 2

April 2020

Lenny has produced the following writing in connection with his World War 2 home learning. Fantastic work Lenny!

Wartime air raid shelter

My feelings

When the sirens went off, I was a little bit scared. When I got into the air raid shelter, I felt shivery and nervous. I could imagine everyone could have felt very scared especially little children. I would have been very worried if that happened to me knowing that bombs were dropping over us.

When listening to Winston Churchill giving his speech it reminded me of Boris Johnson and her majesty the Queen talking about the Covid 19 virus and I felt a bit emotional but reassured upon hearing this.’
