Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you have all had a good weekend. So, the final week of this half term, I feel I need to state that as I feel all the weeks are merging into one! Summer term two is about to begin, very strange.

It is virtual sports week, thank you to Mr Bradbury and the PE dept for organising the events, please try and support if you can. We wait to see on Friday if there are any surprising personal bests amongst us!

A few updates:

The percentage of staff impacted by COVID-19 remains at 34%.

We have now issued £11,325 in vouchers for free school meals.

The school is open throughout half term to continue our Care Provision. Attendance to the provision is rising which is good.

Well, last week saw a number of different Government guidance released, reviewed, released again……I am currently on version 5 of our proposal for the wider opening of the school to incorporate supplementary support to year 10 and 12. Our risk assessment is nearly complete, I am going through the final checks and I will share this with you on Wednesday.  I will also share with you my initial proposal for our supplementary provision.  My return to school plan is gradual and very measured,  starting very small and building from there.  The risk assessment is thorough, and will ensure that the site is COVID secure and that social distancing can be strictly followed.

For half term, please plan to take it as a half term as much as you possibly can. I have asked staff to not set/follow up work during this time with families. Take the opportunity to have a rest and switch off!

As always, thank you for your ongoing support.

Take care and stay safe,

Amanda Woodfin

Headteacher.
