  • School Closure 19.07.22

    In light of the continuing extreme weather warning, we have had to further review our plans. We have had issues today with air conditioning units in some of the classes for our more complex pupils/students and the engineers cannot guarantee they can identify the issue and/or fix the units before school starts tomorrow. Those classes without air conditioning have continued to increase in temperature throughout the day which has made it quite uncomfortable for our pupils/students and staff. Many of our pupils/students have struggled with not being able to go outside which has impacted on their behaviour.

  • Severe Weather Update

    Owing to the severe weather warning, I have decided to leave the decision as to whether children attend school on Monday and Tuesday (18th and 19th July) up to parents/carers. School will be open as normal to any child that does attend. I will be authorising absence for any child whose parents choose to keep them off school. In line with school policy, could I ask that parents/carers telephone the school from 8am if they do decide to keep their children at home on Monday and Tuesday.

  • 6th Form Graduation

    The severe weather warning for the beginning of next week continues, and we are having to review plans for the last week of term. The 6th form graduation on Tuesday was planned to be held outside. This is now not possible due to the weather warning, and we have no air conditioned spaces large enough to accommodate the amount of expected attendees. We fully appreciate how important this event is to our school leavers and their parents/carers, as many have been with us for their whole school career however, the health and safety of our students must take priority.

The met office have reported that temperatures could be in excess of 35°C in the southeast.

  • Positive COVID Cases

    We have had a few positive Covid cases amongst our pupils/students and staff this week.  NHS advice is that children should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and they either: • have a high temperature • do not feel well enough to go to school, college or childcare, or do their normal activities.   Symptoms of COVID-19 can include: • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste • shortness of breath • feeling tired or exhausted • an aching body • a headache • a sore throat • a blocked or runny nose • loss of appetite • diarrhoea • feeling sick or being sick Your child can come back to school when they feel better or do not have a high temperature.
