Coronavirus Contingency Planning March 2020

Coronavirus Contingency Planning Update  for Friday 20th March 2020


Dear Parents/Carers

We will be partially closing the school tomorrow, Friday 20th March 2020, due to the number of staff who are self-isolating.  As we are partially closing the school, home to school transport will run as normal.  We have decided to continue to prioritise our younger and older students.

Years 7, 8, 12 and 13 ARE to come into school.  However, parents/carers need to be aware that classes in any of these year groups may be covered by non-specialists, with work set by the absent teachers.  

Students in Years 7 and 8 should register with their Form Tutor as normal in the morning.

Years 12 and 13 only have to come in for the lessons that they have and then do private study at home or in the Sixth Form Study Room.  Sixth Form students should sign in and out at Student Reception and do not have to attend morning registration.

At present we are expecting the following Sixth Form subject lessons to be running but this may change on the day: Year 12 Beauty, English, Maths, Biology, Business, Music, ICT, Physics and Sport; Year 13 ICT, Sport and Biology.

Year 11 ARE to come into school but it will be for the first part of the day only.  They are to go to their Tutor Rooms for morning registration as normal.  As this may be their last time together as a year group, Year 11 will then have an assembly in the Hall where they can sign shirts.  Once assembly is finished, around 9.30am, they will then leave the school site and go home as there will be no lessons that day for Year 11.

Years 9 and 10 are to stay at home.  Work will be set on Show My Homework for students to do at home.  Exercise books which are in school with class teachers at the moment will be available for collection from Café Ramsay on Friday 20th March 2020, 9am-3.30pm.  Please be aware that not all exercise books will be available as some self-isolating staff will have them at home.

There will be information emailed to parents/carers before the end of tomorrow about how work will be set by teachers for all students to do at home during the school's closure. 


Kind regards

Mrs Christine McLintock
