Return to School

Students should all be returning to school during the week of the 8th March 2021. The falling rates of infection, the safety measures in place at school and the rapid testing mean that the school is as safe as it can be. There is a legal expectation that students attend school. Any absence must be reported to the school on the day of the absence, in the normal way.

Arrangements for March 2021

Parents/carers have been sent details about Covid 19 testing via letter. There is also an expectation that face masks are now to be worn within lessons as well as around the school. This decision will be reviewed by the government during the Easter holiday period.
To see a copy of all communications, please go to the latest parent letters. Current information and guidance can be found on our Coronavirus Latest page.

Head's Message

Each of your children will have experienced this latest period of lockdown in very different ways. There will have been successes but we are aware of many challenges as well. Our focus when students return will be on their wellbeing and learning to make sure that they all make progress. The chance to see their friends and get out of the house will be really important, as will the return to routine.

Thank you for all of your support.

Mr J Eddy
