Changing Room Update

As of W.C 14th we made the decision to re-open the PE changing room. This decision has been based on us now being able to implement the control measures below, which we were unable to do at the beginning of term.

  •  We have had the changing rooms re-modelled to allow extra space for students to get changed;
  • We have recruited extra cleaning staff to maintain a rigorous cleaning schedule of the changing room between every lesson;
  • The changing rooms are now equipped with hand washing facilities including hand sanitiser stations.

​Children will be able to maintain the same level of separation within their bubbles that they are able to in all of the other classrooms and circulation areas that they are in during the day.

It means that we won't have children sitting in their other lessons wearing sweaty or dirty PE kit which can make them uncomfortable and may detract from their concentration and learning.

This decision will be under constant review and may be subject to change. We will keep you updated of any changes via the website and text messaging system.

Open Evening 2020

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to hold a 'traditional' open evening.

We will however be holding a virtual Zoom briefing for parents & pupils on Thursday 24th September at 6pm.

The briefing will include the following;

  • Welcome from Headteacher, Mr Ross.
  • Curriculum Overview from Deputy Headteacher, Mr Bowerbank.
  • Transition Overview from Head of Year 7, Mrs Grime.
  • A Q & A session for any questions and queries you may have.

A link to enable you to join the briefing will be posted on this section of the website next week.

You can also find useful information on the transition page of the website. This includes a virtual tour, meet the staff and information about the school day and uniform etc.
