School Closure Year 9 students only – Thursday 24th March 2022

Dear Parent/Carer of Year 9

The school has seen a rise in the number of staff Covid-19 cases over the last 24 hours with new cases being reported this evening. We have reviewed the cover needs for tomorrow, and the number of lessons that require cover and we have tried to secure external supply staff as well. Unfortunately, it has become clear that we will not be able to safely run the school at full capacity with the projected number of absent staff. We are therefore going to close the school tomorrow for Year 9 students.

Work for Year 9 will consist of links to Oak National Academy lessons. Links to these will be sent out directly to students first thing tomorrow. I appreciate that this is short notice, but this is a fluid and fast-moving situation.

Thank you for your support.
