Dear Parents / Carers
Yesterday the Government released details regarding the phased reopening of Primary and Secondary schools. Their current expectation is that Secondary schools should be willing and able, from the 1st of June, having met the relevant criteria, to provide face to face tuition to those students sitting exams next year, in our case year 10. They have also released recommendations for schools to follow to keep their staff and pupils safe such as smaller class sizes, staggered start, finish and break times and a range of hygiene strategies to adopt. At the moment we are working with other schools in our Trust to develop a common approach to a phased reopening and as soon as we are in a position to share our plans we will do so. In the meantime, continue to encourage your child to access the home learning materials via the school website and please feel free to contact us if you need any support.
