By now I hope that you have all taken the opportunity to review our High School Back to School: September 2021 slides. While many of our processes and guidelines will be very similar to when we reopened in June 2020, August 2020 and February 2021, having the vast majority of teachers and staff, and a significant number of High School students, vaccinated, will make a significant additional contribution to ensuring that the school is as safe as possible for all of us when we are given permission to reopen.
As always, the Virtual School Experience (VSE) will also continue across all Year Groups to accommodate those families who decide they would rather keep their children at home at this time, with lesson details for every lesson shared via Moodle and students also involved in lessons, via Google Meet etc., as much as possible.
I would like to thank those parents who have already completed our Returning to School survey. With responses for over two thirds of High School students, we are very pleased to be expecting approximately 80% of High School students back in school as soon as we are able to reopen, but we do need responses for all students to be able to create our Seating Plans for all High School classes, an important part of our plans to reopen the school as safely as possible for everyone.
If you have not yet completed our Returning to School survey, please can you complete the survey as soon as possible, as we are very much hoping that we will be able to welcome the students back into school after half-term.
