Provision for Students of Critical Workers and Vulnerable Students – Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,


We are writing to you as your child has been part of our provision during the most recent lockdown. Following the updates from the Government regarding the return of schools from Monday 8th March we are writing to you to confirm the plans and operations of our critical work and vulnerable student provision next week.

Monday 8 March 2021:

Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 critical worker and vulnerable student provision will be in place.

Tuesday 9 March 2021:

Year 7 and 8 critical worker and vulnerable student provision will be in place.  (All Year 9 and 10 students will be back on site for face-to-face teaching).

Wednesday 10 March 2021:

All students in all year groups will be back on site for face-to-face teaching.

As we welcome back year group bubbles in a staggered fashion, we must make some adjustments to our operations. The operations highlighted below will come into effect from Monday 8th March 2021 and will continue when all students in each year group are back on site. A separate letter regarding these operations and our expectations will be sent to all parents and carers this week.

Year Group  Entrance  Learning Area
Year 10 Minerva back gate Minerva plaza
Year 9  Restaurant side door Jupiter top floor
Year 8 Jupiter side gate Jupiter middle floor
Year 7  Phoenix (Sports Centre) gate Neptune building

For the final two days that this provision is in place, students will continue to access their online learning through the Google Classroom following the same curriculum as those working from home. Students on site will need to wear full school uniform and should bring a face covering to wear (unless exempt).

Students should be on site at 8:30am and at their designated entrance where they will be greeted by a member of staff. The school day will continue to finish at 3pm.

All students should bring in a packed lunch and a labelled water bottle with them to school. Lunches will be eaten in their designated classroom or outdoor area to reduce movement in school.

I trust this information has been useful and provided you with some reassurance.


Yours faithfully,


Mr M Gore
