I hope you are having a good break and want to wish you a very Happy New Year. I also wanted to thank you for your support and understanding during what has been a challenging time for schools.
Following Yesterday’s Government announcement, I am writing to you with updated arrangements. We continue to put the safety of all community members at the heart of our decision making.
There has been a lot of reporting about mass testing taking place in schools, however schools have not been given adequate information yet about how this will be carried out. We will write to you again when we have further news. It is likely that we will use the website to host consent forms that we would like you to fill in for your child.
As things currently stand the following arrangements are in place:
Monday 4th January - Staff training day – no students are in
Tuesday 5th January - Children of critical workers or those students who are vulnerable (those with either an EHC Plan or who have support from a social worker) should also attend school regardless of their Year Group at 8.45am using their usual gate. These students will be taught in their Year Group bubbles and are asked to bring in headphones, if they have them, for use on the school computers.
To notify the school that you are a critical worker, please email the Deputy Headteacher Ms Rachel Kelly on: firstname.lastname@example.org
All other students should work from home – further instructions will follow regarding remote learning.
Year 12 Mock arrangements will be confirmed shortly... read more here.
