As parents will have no doubt seen, the Government has today (Thursday 17th December) announced a change to the arrangements for secondary pupils returning in January.
The timing of the announcement was very late, and has left little time to respond to the announcement, notify parents and reassure students. While the detail has yet to be fully given, from what we have been made aware, the following groups will return to school as normal on Monday 4th January:
- Pupils in Year 11;
- Pupils in Year 13;
- Pupils who are children of key workers;
- Vulnerable children.
During the course of the first week back, we will be putting in place arrangements for Covid testing. All other year groups are currently expected to return as normal on Monday 11th January.
We will update over the holidays as and when we get further details. We are very sorry for any disruption this causes.
The year 13 mocks will go ahead as planned in the first week back. Arrangements will remain the same for these.
For students who normally use school transport and are expected in school week beginning 4th January, this will be running as normal.
