The news of recent national and local restrictions following the rise of positive Covid 19 tests has added further uncertainty to these very difficult times. It is the intention of the government to keep schools open and as you are aware we have put a wide range of measures in place to ensure our schools are as safe as they can be. You can read the specific school plan and risk assessment for your child’s school by visiting the school website. We keep these plans under constant review, and we have tweaked some aspects of the measures since the start of term.

Public Health England have produced a letter for schools to distribute to parents which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are.
The intention of the letter is to help prevent children being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents may have around testing.
The letter, issued to parents/carers, can be read here
It has been confirmed to us today that there has been a positive case of COVID-19 within the school.
We have been in contact with Public Health England and have followed all their advice in relation to the case. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will communicate any further information we receive.
The small number of students who have been in direct prolonged contact with the confirmed case have been contacted and have also received an individual letter. They will be staying at home for 14 days.
The school remains open and your child should continue to attend if they remain well.
Please be assured that the school continues to take all advised precautions to prevent transmission of the virus for the safety of our staff and students.

We have updated our remote learning guidance to take into account two possible situations that could potentially arise over the coming weeks and months. These are:
- That either one or a small number of students are absent from school due to a covid related situation
- Under a tier 2 lockdown we have to adopt a rota system where only some year groups can be in school at a particular time
We have outlined below how your child will receive school work to complete in either of these situations. If your child is absent from school, they should complete all the work that is set for them and submit work for marking when asked to by their teachers. This process of setting work for students who are absent due to a Covid related situation will begin from Monday 21 September 2020

I would like to take the opportunity to share some updated guidance and reminders and would appreciate it if you could discuss the content of this letter with your child. As I am sure you can appreciate it is important that we constantly reiterate these expectations in order to keep us all as safe as possible.

Please refer to the letter attached from NCC regarding transport arrangements.
These changes are required because the bus station is very busy in the afternoon making it extremely difficult for students to practice social distancing whilst waiting to join their school bus for the journey home. We are hoping these changes will help address these issues. If it is successful the revised pick up arrangements will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
It was lovely to see the children and young people back in school last week. Attendance across all of the Trust schools was excellent and it is clear that everyone is very pleased to be back. We are all getting used to the new procedures and policies that we have implemented to keep everyone safe and I would like to thank you and your children for supporting these changes.
It is important to understand the actions to be taken in the event of a case of Covid 19 being reported, so that we can contain any infection and prevent it spreading.
I am writing to you to give you an update on the curriculum and exam expectations for Year 11 students this year. Ofqual have consulted on many aspects of this and full details of their conclusions are linked here. Pages 14-18 summarise the changes across all GCSE subjects. We are still waiting to hear decisions around the curriculum in Health and Social Care, IT and Children’s Play, Learning and Development.
The main headlines are
- There will be no change to both the number of exams and the length of the exams that students will take in each subject next summer
- There will be no additional optional questions included on almost all subject exams next summer

I was assured by Emblematic last night that all orders have been distributed and will arrive with families today. Disappointingly, I was also told that some exchanges will not be ready for Tuesday. Emblematic have contacted those families affected by this development and have made plans to ensure all exchanged uniform is collected by students in school on Wednesday.
This means that some Year 9 students may not have all items of school uniform for their first day tomorrow. If this is the case for your child then they should attend school in their PE kit. Should you have had issues with the supply of PE kit too then please wear something similar like trainers, tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie.
I realise that this may cause additional anxiety to some students but want to reassure students that they are not to worry. All staff are aware of the issues and will put all of their energies into ensuring all students feel safe, happy and secure tomorrow
