Dear Parents and Carers

Following on from the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, I am writing to confirm what we know at this point. Schools will be teaching remotely for all year groups for the rest of this half term. This is until mid-February. We will continue to provide on-site provision for the children of key workers, vulnerable students and students with EHCPs. A small number of you have confirmed you would like this provision and we will be here to welcome your children tomorrow. Please contact the school if you no longer wish to send your child in.

Given the rapid change to what has been planned, we will no longer be teaching online tomorrow. This will start for all students on WEDNESDAY, to allow staff time to collect resources, equipment and books that they need in order to teach online.

I will write to you again tomorrow (Tuesday) to give you a further update. This will include anything we hear regarding arrangements for examinations for students in January and in the summer.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes

Adrian Ward
