Update Partial Closure 24/25 Nov 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

I write to update you about our plans for the next few days. Yesterday we had a further five teaching staff absent, taking our staff absence to 20%, which supported our decision to partially close the school to a Year Group. 

Today, two staff have returned but we have a further six staff absent and therefore without Year 9 working at home we would not be able to cover lessons at school. 

To this end, we have rolled our staffing through to the end of the week, knowing the numbers of staff who will not return this week and we feel that we have no choice but to continue with a partial closure of the school to the following year groups listed below:

Wednesday 24th November - Year 10

Thursday 25th November - Year 7

Work will be set for these Year Groups for these days by 8am via google classroom. Staff may be able to respond to queries from students at home but please bear in mind that they will be covering other lessons.

We realise that none of this is ideal but we are hopeful that with a long weekend we can return to normal next week.

Thank you for all your messages of support, they are very much appreciated by everyone here at school
