Expectations of students remaining in school

These guidelines are for students who are remaining in school during the wider school closure.

Students must arrive in time for registration at 8.45am. Everyday, students should make their way to the main hall to register and to be given their timetable for the day.

Students must be in full school uniform.

Students must bring the appropriate equipment to enable them to work (pens etc). Please bring your PE kit in every day.

Students should bring an outdoor coat as they will be spending break and lunchtime outside.

The school day will run as normal, starting at 8.45am and finishing at 3.20pm.

There will be a reduced service in the canteen but food will be available at break and lunchtime. Free School Meals students will continue to receive this. Parent pay will continue as usual.

Expectations regarding behaviour will remain the same as usual with appropriate sanctions being set for those who choose not to comply.

The content of the school day will differ from your usual timetable but will have the same expectations in terms of work as those students who are working from home.

Teachers will be available to support you with your work although they may not be your usual class teacher.

EHCP students will continue to receive support.

If necessary, we may need to combine year groups but this will be communicated to you on a daily basis.

School buses will continue to operate.
