Coronavirus Bulletin 20.3.20 Update 2

Thursday 19/03/2020 13:07pm
All schools close on Friday 20th March to the majority of students and this potentially means it may be sometime before we see some of our students again, particularly those in Years 11 and 13. As Year 11 and 13 examinations and assessments have been cancelled, we have now taken the decision that these year groups remain at home on Friday 20th March. The following year groups are to attend school as normal on Friday 20th March; Years 7, 9, 10 and 12 with Years 8, 11 and 13 to remain at home. It is important that students in Years 10 and 12 who are fit and able to come to school do attend, as these students will potentially miss a significant portion of their academic year and will still have examinations in 2021. We want to ensure we maximise the teaching and learning they have available.

Partial Closure Changes – Whilst we have been able to manage to remain open to the majority of students so far, due to increased staff absence, we will have to adapt our partial closure arrangements for the next few days. Thursday 19th and Friday 20th March, Years 8, 10 and 12 will be required to study at home. Students should access their learning online as outlined below. School will remain open as normal for Years 7, 9, 11 and 13.

We would like Yr9 to remain at home on Wednesday 18th March.

To help parents plan ahead, at this stage we will be looking for Yr9 to return to school on Thursday 19th March and for Yr10 to study at home on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th March. Yr10 study work is currently being set by staff and will be ready for these two days. Yr9 and 10 students, should in theory, be able to follow their normal timetable on the days they are studying at home and this routine will ensure good breadth of learning.

This evening, following the government announcement and significantly reduced staffing in our teaching teams, we have had to take the difficult decision to reduce our provision for Tuesday 17th March.

Yr9 will not be in school on Tuesday 17th March. We will assess our staffing capacity on a daily basis and update parents daily in advance of any further adaptations.

Work will be set for all students in yr9 via the Go4Schools homework tool or via their school email. Information will be on our website about how to access this work.

We appreciate the inconvenience this causes to students and parents and hope that you can understand our rationale. This is to ensure our educational provision for at least the majority of our school, including other year groups either much younger or in the midst of their exam courses.

Please check emails and our website for any further updates.
