Update from the Headteacher – Thursday 16 December 2021

Dear Parents and Carers of senior pupils,
Thank you for your understanding in the past couple of weeks as we have asked senior pupils to study for assessments at home.  I am pleased to report that the assessments have gone well with very few interruptions.
We are looking forward to welcoming our senior pupils back into the building on Monday for the last 3 days of term.  All pupils should take a lateral flow test on Monday morning before returning to school.
Due to the ongoing concerns around infection rates, it is important that we adhere to all safety mitigations that we have in place.  Pupils should wear masks at all times, test on a daily basis, maintain good hand hygiene, clean work stations before and after use, stay home and book a PCR test of they are displaying symptoms of Covid.
It is also important  that all pupils remain in the playground until doors are opened at 8.30am.  Pupils should enter through the door closest to their period 1 class.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
Allyson Dobson
