Update - February 1, 2021

Dear parent/carer,

School will remain open for vulnerable children and children of key workers.

If you are a key worker and would like your child to attend school, please complete the Key Worker Registration Form which can be found here: /974/key-worker-registration-form. You can also find the form on the school website under the COVID tab in the main menu. Once you have completed the registration form, please wait to be contacted by the school before you send your child in so that relevant information can be discussed, such as consent for COVID testing, and the return to school can be managed safely. We will aim to contact you on the same day that the form is submitted.

For the majority of pupils who will remain at home and access online learning with their teachers and peers, the main school timetable will remain the same and pupils should follow it each day they have online lessons. Students are expected to attend online lessons 4 days per week. On the day that they do not have online lessons, pupils are expected to use the day to catch up with work and assignments that have been set during the week. Catch up days as from February 1 are as follows:

Year group

Catch up day

Year 7

Monday

Year 8

Tuesday

Year 9

Wednesday

Year 10

Thursday

Year 11

Friday

On the days that pupils do not have online lessons, they should spend time catching up with work set and using other available online resources to consolidate knowledge.

A further reminder of information sent in the letter on Monday is set out below.
