Coronavirus Arrangements

March 2021 reopening of school

Students have now returned to onsite learning following the national lockdown which started in January. Work will continue to be set on Google Classroom for any student who is unable to attend school onsite due to self isolation.

As in September 2021, we are taking a wide range of precautions to ensure that we keep our community as safe as possible, including:

  • enhanced cleaning and sanitising of the school, including the addition of a day time cleaner;
  • provision of hand sanitiser around the school to encourage students to keep their hands clean;
  • encouraging students and staff members to wear face coverings where social distancing cannot be maintained;
  • establishment of a one way system to reduce face to face contact when moving around the school;
  • students are located in year group 'zones' to minimise any contact with other year groups;
  • students enter and exit the site from five rather than one gates to increase social distancing;
  • a staggered dismissal at the end of the school day increases social distancing;
  • school starts later for students so that they do not have to travel on public transport during rush hour.

If someone in your household has one or more of the symptoms below they may have coronavirus:
  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
