Welcome to GANF

Coronavirus – COVID-19 Guidance for Visitors to GANF

All visitors to GANF must wear a face covering, unless medically exempt

Social distancing must be adhered to at all times on both GANF school sites

Visitors to School

We will be welcoming back people who provide therapies or other services to pupils from September as these are vital parts of the educational package we offer. Therapists/visitors will only work with 1 class bubble per visit unless social distancing is possible. For example – counselling can be conducted on a 1:1 basis with pupils from different bubbles as social distancing can be achieved.

We will keep contractors to ‘out of hours’ work where possible and when they do need to visit during the school day we will ensure that there is no contact with pupils and risks of contamination within the building are minimised through the use of PPE and cleaning.

All visitors to the school will have to be approved by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. On entry and exit of the building you will be asked to sanitize your hands.

All visitors will be required to complete a visitor’s log which will include Track and Trace details as per Government guidance.

What to do if you have Symptoms of COVID-19 after your visit

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after your visit please contact the school immediately:

·        a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

·        a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

·        a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship comprises of two Grantham-based schools, Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School.

We cater for pupils between the ages of 3 and 19 with moderate to severe learning difficulties and complex needs. Our pupils’ needs are wide ranging; many are on the autistic spectrum, with others having ADHD and varying degrees of developmental delay, and some with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.

Our school times for pupils are as follows:

Sandon School - 8.50am - 3.10pm

Ambergate Sports College - 8.50am - 3.20pm

Our mission statement is:

“Every second to be Valuable, Inspiring, Personalised”.

At GANF we are constantly striving to improve the lives of our pupils through their environment and experiences.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development is a thread that binds all experiences that our pupils learn from and encounter. Please click on the image to the right, to find out more about Sandon School.
