Reopening arrangements

Details of all logistics from Friday, 5th March onwards

Dear Parent/Carer,

There is lots to do in preparation for the reopening of St Anne’s as I am sure you will be aware.  I will try to keep communication as simple as possible around this so that you can plan accordingly.

  • In the week beginning Monday 1st March, all those who have opted into testing will receive further communication on preparations for this including consent forms, registration cards etc
  • On Friday, 5th March, the final live lessons for Years 10 and 11 will take place.  There will be no further live lessons for them from this point.  Any remaining remote learning will be pre-recorded, or assignment based
  • On Monday, 8th March, the final live lessons for Years 7, 8 and 9 will take place.  There will be no further live lessons for them from this point.  Any remaining remote learning will be pre-recorded, or assignment based
  • From Monday, 8th March, there will be no provision in school for key worker children or vulnerable children

Next, you will fall into one of two categories: those returning and being tested and those returning and not being tested.  Please see your relevant sections below.

Staggered return for those being tested

Wednesday, 10th March Year 9 N/A Years 7, 8, 10 and 11
Thursday, 11th March N/A N/A All year groups

Testing then continues, as we have to test students three times on site in total in the first two weeks according to the guidance from the DfE.  Here is how that will look.

Monday, 8th March None; remote learning only
Tuesday, 9th March Years 10 and 11
Wednesday, 10th March Years 7, 8, 10 and 11

These students then access school as normal.  

I know that this is a lot of information to process all at once, but this is logistically extremely challenging so please bear with us as we continue our preparations.

As stated at the start of this communication, we will write to those who opt in to testing again early next week with the arrangements for this.  

We are so looking forward to welcoming all students back to St Anne's!

Yours in Christ
