Update School Closure
Re: Update School Closure – COVID-19
As you will be aware, in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 the decision has been made to close all schools across the country, except the children of "key workers" and vulnerable students. This means that from Friday 20th March and until further notice, the school will be shut for the majority of students and all planned school events will be cancelled.
Our priority during this time is to ensure that students do not lose valuable learning time with their studies. As a result, work for every single subject for each year group is available to access using the following link:
Teachers are available and working from home during the term of the closure and will be communicating with students, via Google Classroom, to provide clear instructions on lessons.
You can be assured that when your child uploads completed work, their subject teacher will set new assignments for them to complete. Should your child need support or have any queries they will be able to contact their subject teacher via Google Classroom.
We wish this closure to have as little impact on learning as possible and seek your ongoing support with ensuring that students complete all work set. Effective strategies could include setting clear times within the day in which work needs to be completed.
We will be posting and updating all information that we have on the school website and we urge you to look here regularly. Should you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning please contact the relevant Head of Year:
Ms. J Farmer

As previously advised, can we ask that you remind your children to be vigilant with the following advice that is provided in the links below and that we are all reminded of on a daily basis by Public Health England (PHE) and the National Health Service (NHS). If you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child, please call NHS 111. The advice is to not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environments. Please see further information on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website.
We realise that this is an unprecedented time and assure you that we will keep you updated with any further information as it is provided, in particular when more information regarding Y11 and Y13 qualifications is announced. If you are in Y11 or Y13 please follow this link for questions and answers about the teacher assessments:
I wish you all the very best during this time.
