This information simply confirms that contained in the letter sent to all families before the summer break.
In light of the fact that very few of our pupils will have been in school since 20th March, none of them will be familiar with our new routines, and our new Year 7 pupils have missed out on all aspects of their induction. With this in mind, and as a part of our risk assessment, we are planning for a safe, phased return as follows:
|Year 7||Year 8||Year 9||Year 10||Year 11|
|7th September||✓||✓||Home Learning||Home Learning||✓|
|8th September||✓||Home Learning||Home Learning||✓||✓|
|9th September||✓||Home Learning||✓||✓||✓|
|10th September||✓||✓||✓||Home Learning||✓|
The School Day: in line with DfE guidance, each Year Group will form a bubble with the intention that the bubbles should not meet at any stage of the day. There will be changes to the start and end of the school day, split breaks and lunches, and most pupils will be in the same classroom for nearly all of their lessons – the exceptions being PE and IT for all year groups, and practical option subjects for Years 10 and 11.
Pupils will be arriving and leaving school as follows:
|Arriving at (no earlier)||Entering and leaving school via||Leaving at|
|Year 7:||8:35||Green Gates||2:50|
|Year 8:||8:50||Green Gates||3:05|
|Year 9:||8:35||Back Gates||2:50|
|Year 10:||8:50||Back Gates||3:05|
|Year 11:||8:35||Back Gates||3:15|
Green Gates are on Melbourne Avenue and the Back Gates on Broadway
It is essential, for the integrity of the bubbles, that pupils arrive at their start time – no earlier and no later.
We very much look forward to seeing all of our pupils return in September so that we can return to some sense of normality.
