Welcome Back Year 10 and year 12

From Monday we are really happy to welcome back year 10. It’s only for a couple of hours for each student every week but we’ve been preparing really hard and we are very much looking forward to seeing our students again. We’ll also be welcoming back some year 12 students.

We have been planning this for a number of weeks and our health and safety audits and risk assessments have been extensive, you can find them at the link: https://bit.ly/3hi2zKJ

For an overview of the plan and FAQs, I’d refer you to our communication on the 20th May which you can find here: https://bit.ly/3cUHfHL – please note that the dates in this link have been pushed back by a week.

I’d also like to draw your attention to a slight change in guidance. Students should not come in with any equipment, we will provide everything. All equipment will be cleaned thoroughly at the end of every session. We will also be supplying your child with a bottle of sealed water at their workstation. To this end, we only require students in clean clothes – they do not need bags, equipment, food or drink. Mobile phones should not be used or turned on during contact time and kept in pockets,

These two year-groups have key exams next year and this face-to-face contact time will help our transition back to full-time studies at the Academy when the time is right.

All year groups will continue to be taught remotely. In order to allow this to work, we are expecting to stick to the current (remote learning) structure via SMHW. Our provision for children of key workers and vulnerable children remain unchanged.

If you would like to speak to me or a member of my leadership team, please send an email to [email protected] or by telephone 01384 566598, we will do our best to answer any questions.

I hope that you are keeping well and that you are starting to enjoy a return to some levels of normality. I’d urge you to stay safe and keep observing social distancing guidance; it’s also never been more important for us all to keep washing our hands.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Lisa Mason
Principal
