End of Term 2 Letter for Parents / Carers
We have finally reached the end of term! Although I am sure for many of us it won’t be a normal Christmas, I hope that it will nonetheless be a happy and restful one. If you haven’t yet had a chance to enjoy our end of term video, celebrating what the students have been up to in school, please do take the time to check it out here: https://vlc.org.uk/l/term2 .
Many of us will have been pleased to hear that North Somerset has moved into Tier 2 with effect from tomorrow. For us in school, this will not see any changes to our risk assessment or Covid procedures.
You may have also seen two pieces of news – one regarding the introduction of rapid testing in schools and another regarding a phased return to school at the start of January. We will not have a phased return and will be opening, as normal, on 4th January for all students. Details of the rapid testing system are yet to be fully confirmed and so I will be in contact with more information in the New Year. Please be assured that this is voluntary and so no testing will start without student and parental permissions.
Thank you for all your support this term. We have enjoyed working with your young people – they make every day an interesting one!
