Planning for Partial School Opening

In line with Government guidelines we are working with parents of Year 10 students and our staff to develop and implement safe strategies to extend school provision to Year 10 students along with children of key workers from June 15th . As soon as our school plan is agreed it will be published to all parents.

Please click here to read a letter from Mrs Canham regarding the reopening of schools within the Quantock Education Trust.


We have today issued a new Home Schooling Timetable to help our Year 7,8 and 9 students plan their home learning.

If you are a key worker and require childcare for your son or daughter at Haygrove School because you have no other safe childcare provision, please email stating your child’s name, registration group, parent's name, parent's occupation and the days/times you intend to send your child to school.

Free School Meals (FSM)

Parents of students who are eligible for free school meals will be contacted and invited to collect vouchers (£12.50/week per child) between 10am and 12 noon tomorrow (24 March) and the following day (Wednesday 25 March). Parents will need to bring a form of identity in order to receive the vouchers. The vouchers will be for the period until Easter (2 week period). We will be reviewing the arrangement post Easter in line with Government guidance.


If your child is entitled to a Free School Meal (FSM), they can use their £2.60 allowance to buy any of the Best Value School Meal Options. If they purchase the same items individually they will exceed their FSM allowance of £2.60.

FSM allowance must be spent in full in one sitting and unspent FSM allowance is not carried over to the next day. Students can add additional funds to their FSM allowance using their cashless catering account if they need to buy additional items at break or lunchtime.
