Dear Parents / Carers
I hope you are well.
Arrangements for The First Week
Wednesday 02 September 2020 Staff INSET Day
Thursday 03 September 2020 Year 7 Induction 08:30 - 14:50
Friday 04 September 2020 Year 7 Induction 08:30 - 13:10
Year 10 / 11 Induction 08:50 - 10:50
Year 8 / 9 Induction 11:10 - 13:10
Monday 07 September 2020 Timetabled Lessons begin
During the Induction sessions, we will be introducing the students to the changes. We will distribute timetables and planners, explain the zones and ensure they are prepared to begin lessons on Monday 07 September 2020. Students must attend these sessions in uniform and only attend during the times outlined above.
These induction sessions have been put in place to ensure that we can settle the children back to a routine as quickly as possible and ensure they understand all of the safety measures in place. Our new Year 7 students did not have the usual Transition Days in June and they have not had the opportunity to meet their tutor, tour the school and orientate themselves. I'm a sure our current parents / carers understand the importance of the new Year 7 students having an opportunity to have an induction without other students around.
When the students arrive they should go to the following Zones:
Year 7: Canteen (Zone 3)
Year 8: Zone 4
Year 9: Zone 1
Year 10: Zone 2
Year 11: Zone 5
The school buses will run on Thursday 03 September and Friday 04 September. On Friday 04 September, Year 10 and Year 11 can access the bus to travel into school. They must make their own way home. Year 8 and Year 9 must make their own way into school, but they can catch the school bus home. Year 7 students can travel both ways.
