Return to School.

 

7th September 2021

Dear Parents,

 

I hope you and your families have enjoyed a refreshing and relaxing break.  We are of course a little disappointed that the current sunny spell did not materialise until late August, however, we look forward to welcoming back all pupils this week.

Year 7 students will be in 9.45am-3.10pm on Tuesday 7th September, when we will carry out lateral flow tests to students whose parents have given their consent.

Please note that all other students (year 8 - 12) are asked to take two lateral flow tests at home BEFORE returning to school.

Start times will be:

Year 7 & 8 – Wednesday 8th September 8.40am

Year 9 – Wednesday 8th September 10.00am

Year 10 & 11 – Wednesday 8th September 11.30am

The day will conclude at 3.10pm for all pupils although there will be a slightly staggered exit to reduce congestion.

 

Toilet Facilities

Refurbishment of the new toilets will not be complete until the latter end of this month, so for this reason we have assigned the toilets as follows:

Year 7

English

Year 8

MFL/Maths

Year 9

MFL/Maths

Year 10

By Mr Ali’s Office/SEN

Year 11

Science

 

Risk Assessment

The school is planning to offer pupils as close to ‘normal’ education as possible, with pupils moving from department to department for their lessons.  However, we are aware that infection rates in Barnet remain high and whilst we will no longer need to contact trace and isolate ‘bubbles’, we are aware that where pupils have Covid, they will then be required to do so.

In conjunction with the local authority, we are required to have an ‘outbreak management plan’. This will outline additional measures the school would need to employ if there is a local outbreak in the school or in the local area. Details of this plan will follow.

We are obviously keen to decrease as much disruption from Covid related absences as much as possible.  Pupils will have different arrangements than last year for lunch and breaks, please see the below for details:
