From Monday 23rd March until further notice, the school site will be closed at the direction of the government, as a key part of the social distancing strategy to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
This is a massive adjustment for us all to make very suddenly. We will now operate our Stay at Home School model until we are asked to reopen our site by the government. At the minute, there is no indication of the timescale for this, although the cancellation of exams implies that it is likely to extend into the summer term.
Mrs A Mellors
We have to build a new model and ways of operating very quickly. Many of our previous structures and requirements are no longer in place.
The Chinese word for "crisis" (危機) is composed of two Chinese characters signifying "danger" and "opportunity" respectively.
Students may attend site to attend an arranged provision only in line with government guidance. At present, this is limited to those students who are eligible for supervision on the school site and who have been allocated a place, and those Year 10 students attending an arranged on-site provision to support their remote learning. Prior to attending the site, a parent must read and complete the relevant Parent Agreement.
