The school has issued the following statement, following The Prime Minister's announcement this evening.
You will no doubt have heard Boris Johnson’s address to the nation this evening – A national lockdown, where schools are to revert to online learning for the foreseeable future. You will also have picked up that Y11 & Y13 exams will not take place, we will now have to wait to see what will be put in their place and how this affects our children.
Given that we already have plans in place for remote learning this week, this will go ahead as planned. At this stage we are unable to bring other year groups into school. However, children of key workers and vulnerable and those with limited access to ICT, should still attend COVID testing and lessons as planned from tomorrow. Provision for this group will continue throughout the lockdown.
The school has planned to COVID test Y10 & Y12 tomorrow. Given the very late notice of the lockdown these will still go ahead.
This is very short notice for all of us and no doubt is causing you all considerable inconvenience.
I will provide further information as I receive it and will be in touch soon.
