Wider school opening update
Plans are being put in place to widen the opening of our school from the week beginning 1st June, following the Government’s recent announcement to this effect. This involves a detailed risk assessment being undertaken and specific plans put in place to ensure maximum pupil and staff safety on return. School staff are currently working on this and aim to publish details of how the school will widen its opening by Friday 22nd May at the latest. We will write to all parents with these details.
Parents should note meanwhile that initially only some year 10 and year 12 students will be involved in this wider opening. This will be in addition to those who are classed as vulnerable and children of critical workers, who continue to be eligible to attend.
The plans that we will communicate on 22nd May will come into effect after the half term week, providing the Government’s scientific advice to be published on Thursday 28th May gives us the go-ahead to put the plans into action.
Parents should note that the school will be closed for the Bank Holiday weekend and the normal school half term week from Monday to Friday 25th to 29th May. This means that the school buildings will be closed to all students and remote provision will be suspended for that week.
The government has set up a special hotline for any parents, pupils or staff who have concerns:
Phone: 0800 046 8687
Email: [email protected]
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)
