Dear parents and carers,

I have now completed a full risk assessment about whether we can open school during the next two days of industrial action by the National Education Union, on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March.

As I result, I can announce that school will be open only to year 11,12 and 13 students in addition to a small number of students in years 7-10 who have an EHCP.

Parents of students with an EHCP will be contacted by the SEND team. Students should only come into school if invited by the SEND team.

This is because we will not have enough staff to ensure that all students are safe and educated in school on that day.  We will only have the capacity to open for a reduced number of students. We have prioritised years 11, 12 and 13 because those year groups are sitting their Pre Public Exams this week.  All students in year 11,12, and 13 will be required to attend school.

Year 11 students must come into school to sit exams. All year 11 students have exams in the morning and some have exams in the afternoon. After their exams are finished year 11 students can stay in school to revise or go home to revise.

Years 12 and 13 will receive some of their lessons and will sit PPE exams and will spend the rest of their time working independently on their independent study logs. They will receive a schedule for the day from Mr Harrison, in advance.

In order to minimise the disruption to children’s education, work will be set on Google classroom for years 7 to 10.

Years 10 will use GCSE Pod and Seneca to practice what they have already learned and to plug gaps in their knowledge, focussing on English, Maths and Science.

Years 7,8 and 9 will have work set for some core subjects subjects, on Google classroom.

It is to be hoped that this these are the last days of industrial action that take place.  In the meantime, the school has sought to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of the industrial action on our students.

Thank you for your understanding.
