Staying Healthy online

The 20, 20, 20 Rule

All staff have been encouraged to incorporate the 20,20,20 Rule into their lessons, giving pupils permission to look out the window for just 20 seconds to give their eyes a rest from the intensity of working close to a screen.  We all need this to become a regular habit we foster as we adjust to the physical demands of working in this way.

The School Shop is currently closed however, orders for uniform can be placed by email or over the phone and collected at a convenient time.  Please contact Mr Sam Taylor on 01242 258016 or at shop@deanclose.org.uk
