Now, we are deeply midst the phase of planning for full reopening in September. Striking the balance of safety, enabling good acceleration of learning, keeping continuity of learning and teacher and some semblance of normality is not straight forward. However plans are taking shape. As you would expect, there is an extensive period of liaison and consultation with many groups within school – governors, SLT, subject leaders, unions, the GEP. However, we will have full plans ready for sharing with parents by the end of next week. These will be sent in a standalone communication on Friday 17 July.

A summer term quite unlike any other – but one in which our community has shown strength and determination and most importantly, care for those around us.

Please be aware that the latest guidance on symptoms of COVID-19 has been updated to include loss of smell. The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

• A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature).

• A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).

• A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
