Staff training days: Monday 6 September, Tuesday 7 September.
Term starts: Wednesday 8 September 2021
From September, pupils will:
- no longer be taught in year group bubble areas and will instead be taught in faculty areas.
- no longer be sent home by school to self-isolate. NHS Test and Trace will now be in charge of all close contact tracing.
- no longer need to have staggered exit times.
- all use one entrance / exit.
However, we do know that government plans can change and have done so throughout the pandemic. We will keep you informed if there are any amendments to the above.
The Department for Education would like all pupils (whose parents have given prior consent) to be tested twice in the first 5 days of their return in September. In order to facilitate this, The Department for Education has advised schools to stagger pupils’ return over a few days. We will write to you in early September with further details and timings.
