From the Office
A message from the Executive Head
Dear Parents and Guardians

As we complete our third week of lockdown, schools are trying to glean any information available about the government's intentions for the safe return of pupils to their ‘physical’ classes. While we have been guaranteed two weeks’ notice before children return, we still don’t know if they intend to bring back Year groups on a rotational basis or to guide us to prioritise examination year groups, or if there is to be no movement at all after half term.

What we do know is that our best laid plans are always liable to change, often at short notice! Please be assured that we will update you on any guidance that is presented to us, and we will ensure your children's safety and wellbeing will always be our top priority once we are allowed to invite pupis, and staff back to school, and we value your ongoing support and understanding.

In the meantime, please have a safe and restful weekend.

Best wishes

Justin Spanswick
Executive Headteacher
