We realise that this is a difficult time for everyone in our school community. We will continue to do everything possible to support families in the days, weeks and months ahead.
School will continue to be open as normal for all year groups on Thursday and Friday. It is important that families continue to follow Government guidance in terms of the symptoms of Coronavirus.
The school has already made detailed plans for how to support students with their work during the school closure. Work will be available for all students from Monday from our Home Learning page. CLICK HERE to view this now, however the work will not be fully uploaded before Monday.
We realise that this is a particularly difficult time for students in Y11 and Y13. We are very proud of these young people and how hard they have worked for their exams. As soon as we get further clarity from the Government about their plans to ensure that all students get the grades they deserve we will be in touch. The school sees this as a key priority and one where clarity is needed as soon as possible.
We are now planning the provision we can offer children of key workers and for those who are vulnerable. In order to help with this planning it would be very helpful if the parents/carers of key workers completed a very short survey for us. Once the government announces the different types of key workers, we will be asking parents to complete this short survey.
I would like to reiterate our absolute commitment to supporting all our families and our school community in the period ahead.
