Who can come to school?
Updated 15 June 2020
On Sunday 10 May, the government announced their conditional road map for ending Lockdown.
We have been asked to provide face-to-face contact to face-to-face support to supplement the remote education of year 10 and year 12 pupils from Monday 15 June 2020.
They have not asked us to provide this for pupils in other year groups. Pupils in all other year groups should continue to complete the Home Learning work being set by their teachers.
The Home Learning work being set by teachers will remain the predominant mode of education during this term for pupils in all year groups.
When are Year 10 pupils returning?
Small groups of Year 10 pupils have started to return this week.
Those that have been invited in responded to our survey to say they would like to attend from this week.
Those that responded to say they would like to return but not yet, will be invited in before the end of term. In the meantime they should continue to complete the Home Learning work that is being set by their teachers.
When are Year 12 students returning?
We are currently asking Year 12 pupils to respond to our survey so we can finalise our planning for a proposed return to school from Monday 22 June.
You can complete the survey here.
Will this be a return to normal lessons?
This WILL NOT be a return to normal full-time education for pupils in Year 10 and Year 12.
Pupils will only attend for one day each week in small 'bubbles' of no more than 12.
Year 10 pupils will have lessons, taught by subject specialists, in Science, English and Mathematics.
Year 12 students will have lessons, taught by subject specialists, in each of their 3 option subjects.
Pupils will not be in for full days. They will start a little later than usual and finish before lunch to help avoid travel at peak times.
Will pupils be safe in school?
We have very detailed risk assessments and operating procedures in place for the site to ensure that we adhere to government guidance and ensure all pupils and staff are as safe as possible.
This will mean strict rules about the arrival to and departure from school, the use of classrooms, movement around the school and behaviour at break and lunch times. Pupils who do not follow these rules will not be permitted on site.
All of the details for each provision, including: timings and structure of the day, how to arrive and depart, information on what work they will do, what to bring, what to wear, etc can be found in the Wider Opening of Schools document below:
