Reopening of School – Update 28/08/20
With the school due to reopen next week we have some updates on the wearing of face coverings and the provision of school catering (school dinners). You can also download the detailed guide with further information about the reopening of the school at the bottom of this page.
Wearing of Face Coverings
You will be aware from the news recently that guidance from the government on face coverings has been altered. In response to this, we are changing our approach and will be expecting students to wear a face covering if they are moving during lesson changeovers or congregating indoors. Additionally, we will be expecting them to wear a face covering when on the corridors during break and lunch time and when queuing for food or to use the toilets. Please make sure that students have a clean face covering with their belongings.
To be clear, we will not be expecting them to wear face coverings in lessons or outside during social times. You can also be sure that we would make exceptions in individual cases where there is an identified and agreed need.
Opening of School Catering (school dinners)
We will now be opening the catering facilities for all students from the start of term, so students now have the option to bring a packed lunch or purchase food at school.
The menu will not be as extensive as normal but will include a selection of hot and cold food including paninis, pasta dishes, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, fruit, cookies and a range of drinks.
The service areas will all be allocated by Year group with Year 7 using the Westfield Drive Canteen, Years 8 & 10 the Bexton Road Canteen at separate times, Year 9 have a new food service point near the Hub and Year 11 will use the Studio Café.
For the Sixth Form the Starbucks Cafe will also be open with its usual range of teas, coffees and snacks.
