Welcome back to Term 4!
As you will have heard from the press yesterday, we will be returning to face-to-face school from Monday 8 March. Please be aware that there will be a phased return during the week to enable testing as the pupils return and not all pupils will return to school on 8 March. We are currently working our way through the guidance and planning the logistics and will share more detailed plans with you as soon as we are able. To enable us to start considering the detailed logistics regarding testing in particular, a message will follow with further specific details.
Please can I remind you that this Wednesday 24 February periods 4-6 will be “screen free, teams free and email free” and on Wednesday 3rd March, it will be Periods 1-3. No lessons will take place and a range of activities have been shared that your young people and possibly you might consider doing during these times to provide opportunities for some No Screens, No Teams, No Email time.
We are also awaiting the outcome of the Ofqual consultation regarding the arrangements to replace the Summer exam series and will communicate this with the relevant year groups and their parents as soon as we are able.
We are very much looking forward to seeing our staff and young people back in school but are determined to do this in as safe a way as possible to protect our whole community and thank you for your patience.
