19 Mar Covid-19 Update 19.03.20
Dear Parent and Carers,
Update Covid-19 – restricted opening of schools
You will all be aware of the Prime Minister’s announcement last night that schools will be closed for most students from Friday 20th March 2020.
Like all school leaders, I am waiting for further information about which students are expected to continue to attend and what this will looks like. I will update you again later today.
In the meantime, our plans for closure are fully in place, and expectations for students about schoolwork will be communicated in full. Students already have 3 weeks of work sent home with them. Students who have been absent will have their work packs hand delivered today. If you are self-isolating, we will leave these safely. Following this period, work will be set online through Microsoft Teams. Instructions about how to download Microsoft O365 has been delivered as part of the learning packs, through yesterday’s letter home and is available on our website. If online access is a problem, please can you contact the school today so that we coordinate a way to get work.
Students in all year groups will be expected to complete their schoolwork. Year 11 and Year 13 in particular will be set work that will help them be able to progress to their next step, making sure that they have all the learning they need to do well in the future.
I will be in contact later today to update you further.
Keep safe and look after each other.
