Partial School Closure

We have seen a sharp rise in staff absences today due to the new guidance issued by the Government on 16.3.20. We have no confirmed cases of Coronavirus, however our staffing levels are not sufficient to provide an education and supervision for the whole school. It is with regret that we will be closed tomorrow to Year 9 students – Wednesday 18.3.20 only.

If staffing levels continue to fall we reserve the right to continue closing the school to year groups but would aim to this on a rotation, but avoiding Year 11. Our plan, is at this moment, to close to Year 8 pupils on Thursday 19.3.20 and potentially Year 8 and 9 on Friday 20.3. 20 but this may all change due to staffing and Government announcements.

Work will be classed on Classcharts for students to access from home.

We really appreciate parents understanding at such a difficult time.
