We have been closely monitoring forecasts over the weekend. As a result, a decision has been made to close the school early due to the likelihood of very high temperatures on Monday and Tuesday. The school will close early at 12:30 pm on these days. Normal lessons will be taught up until then, but the DFE has made it clear that physical activities should not take place.
We have taken this decision because of the difficulty in keeping students and staff safely cool in the school buildings, almost all of which have no air conditioning and which face into the sun for the best part of the day.
We hope to be able to rearrange the school bus collection time accordingly. Any students unable to get home will be supervised in the hall (generally cooler).
Our remote learning offer is available to students to facilitate working at home. More details are provided below.
We thank you in advance for your support in this action.
Mr Edward Rodriguez
Please read our student heatwave action plan.
The school games day has been moved to Wednesday 20 July and will be kept under review.
Remote learning is available to your child while the school is closed. There will not be live teaching, the work will be accessed via your child’s google classrooms. Classroom codes can be found here, your child should follow their usual timetable and look at subjects which they are due to be taught. Teachers will email their classes directly, giving them any additional instructions about their learning and attach any resources they may need.
In Years 7,8 & 9, students may also like to attempt one of our Super Curriculum activities.
If you have any questions regarding remote learning please feel free to email your child’s teacher directly or email [email protected]
