The government issued this guidance yesterday afternoon (11th May) and again this morning (12th May) regarding education settings:

We understand at present that for secondary schools, the government announcement means that Year 10 and Year 12 only will "begin some face to face support...although we do not expect these pupils to return on a full-time basis at this stage" from June 1st onwards.

We are working through what this means at the moment and most importantly, how to do this safely for all of our students and staff. Please be patient and bear with us. We will be in touch with parents with more details and information as soon as we can.
