Returning to School in September 2020

I would like to thank you for your support in what has proved to be a difficult time. We have missed having the students in school and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in September.

The government has issued detailed guidance which requires us to: keep year groups apart from each other, stagger the beginning and end of the school day to enable year groups to leave at different times and to keep year groups apart at break and lunch times.

We will publish our revised risk assessment for September opening and a response to recent announcements about face coverings in school, next week.
