Update on wider school opening Latest update from our Headteacher Dear Parents and Carers, Following the Prime Minister’s address on Sunday 24 May, it is now confirmed that Year 10 and Year 12 students will not return for some face to face school contact until at the earliest Monday 15 June. Home learning will continue from 1 June with increasing use of ‘video conferencing lessons’ in addition to Class Charts school work. I will write to you again next week with the proposed plans for Year 10 and Year 12 students from 15 June onwards. School remains open each day from Monday 1 June for vulnerable and key worker children. Please contact school if this provision will help you, confirming which days will be required and if your child will need to catch the school bus. Best wishes, Mr Knowles Headteacher Government guidelines On Wednesday 13 May the Government updated its guidelines around coronavirus (COVID-19). Stay alert We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must: stay at home as much as possible work from home if you can limit contact with other people keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible) wash your hands regularly Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms. You can read the full guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do The Government says its previous advice also remains – everyone should regularly wash their hands and avoid contacting the NHS unless it’s essential. School closed until further notice The Government has asked secondary schools to plan for a partial re-opening from 15 June for selected year groups only (Years 10 and 12). https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers/reopening-schools-and-other-educational-settings-from-1-june Tupton Hall School is currently open ONLY for children of key workers, as identified by the Government’s list and vulnerable students with EHCPs, GRIP funding or a social worker.
