Re-opening of schools 12.05.20

Updated: May 13

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday, the Department for Education published revised guidance on Monday evening outlining a route map for the gradual and phased re-opening of schools for more groups of students. We are determined to do this in accordance with a key principle :

To maximise the effectiveness of teaching and care for our students, whilst safeguarding the health and well-being of everyone on site.

We are planning how best we can achieve this. As you can imagine, there are many aspects and details to consider. We will contact all parents and carers before half-term with arrangements that will be introduced from 1st June.

We are sure you share our determination to open again as fully as we can, whilst at the same time guarding the safety and well-being of our students and staff. In the meantime, thank you for your help in supporting learning as best we can.
