School closure

Remote Learning Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July 2022

Dear students, parents and staff

Having reviewed the weather forecast and considered the specific impact this will have in our setting, we have taken the decision to close the school and move to remote learning on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July.

Our analysis of classroom environments last week showed that temperatures at least match and often exceed those outside. As the forecast remains for temperatures to be in the high thirties the health and safety of all our students and staff must be our primary concern. In addition, due to primary and nursery school early closures, we have a number of staff who need flexible working conditions.

Teachers will set learning that students can complete when it suits them and perhaps when it is a bit cooler, and staff can choose to complete their work around their commitments. Students should log in to SatchelOne where their work will be provided. Please note there will be no live streamed lessons.

I am sure you will appreciate the decision taken is in the best interests of our people. The school will re-open on Wednesday when temperatures look to drop to more acceptable levels.

Take care
