We are prepared to go back to school in September with all of our pupils on a full academic and vocational timetable whilst adhering to social distancing. Extra measures being taken include PPE, hand sanitisers for each student and teacher, weekly deep cleaning and regular wiping down of all necessary surfaces, robust risk assessments, temperature taking and allocated medical room for suspected Covid. We currently have our year 6s and 10s in school on full timetable whilst other years continue to access their academic and vocational timetable online via their school chrome books.
Please be assured that we are constantly evaluating the situation regarding the spread of Covid-19, and we are in regular liaison with the Department for Education (DfE), Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS to ensure we prioritise the wellbeing of our school community.
Taking advice from those external agencies, we have already made several adjustments to our provision for the pupils and staff. These adjustments include additional education on good hygiene, prioritising pastoral support for pupils concerned about the virus, and providing the required resources to keep the school as clean as possible.
