Important letter for parents, carers and students – added on 1 November 2021
Dear parents/carers/students – I hope you and your loved ones are well. Please read the following letter carefully as we fully intend to implement, or continue to implement, from Monday 1st November, most of the 10 important points mentioned. So, we fully expect students and staff to be wearing masks again in classrooms and communal areas, unless they have medical reasons not to do so. I am sure you were expecting this news, but it is perhaps reassuring that all schools will be following similar approaches. Further information will follow on Monday regarding the possibility of the reintroduction of bubbles and the cancellation of certain events, e.g. next Thursday’s 6th form Open Evening. It is clearly most important that staff and students conduct lateral flow tests before their return on Monday and continue to do so on a regular basis. I know that we have an ever increasing number of positive cases amongst staff and students. Many thanks for your understanding during these very difficult times.
Very best wishes,
