Re: OPEN EVENING / DAY / SCHOOL CLOSURE
We are delighted to be able to hold a face to face Open Evening this year on Thursday, 23rd September. In order to prepare for this, school will close early for pupils at the following times:-
Years 7 & 8 12.00 pm
Years 9, 10 & 11 12.10 pm
If your child accesses a free school meal then they will collect a packed lunch from the canteen at this time.
We are expecting a high number of visitors at open evening and for health and safety reasons the decision has also been made to close the school on Friday 24th September so that a thorough deep clean can be carried out. This will mean that the planned Open Day on Friday 24th September will be re-scheduled to Monday 27th September (by appointment only).
School will re-open for pupils on Monday 27th September.
This decision has not been made lightly – there has been a slight increase in Covid 19 cases in the area and, as always the health and safety of our pupils and staff is of paramount importance.
Visitors will be asked to wear a mask when inside the building.
I trust you understand my decision and thank you once again for your continued support throughout this difficult time.
Pupils will access Form Time on Microsoft Teams from 8.35 am on Friday and your child will receive their attendance mark at this time. Classwork for the day will be a mixture of Teams and Satchel 1 (Show My Homework) lessons.
