Details of all logistics from Friday, 5th March onwards
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
|Day/Date||Students being tested then returning home||Students on remote learning||Students in school all day|
|Monday, 8th March||Years 10 and 11||Years 7, 8 and 9||N/A|
|Tuesday, 9th March||Years 7 and 8||Year 9||Years 10 and 11|
|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.
|Day/Date||Students being tested during school day||Students in normal lessons|
|Thursday, 11th March||Years 10 and 11||Years 7, 8 and 9|
|Friday, 12th March||Years 7 and 8||Years 9, 10 and 11|
|Monday, 15th March||Year 9||Years 7, 8, 10 and 11|
|Tuesday, 16th March||Years 10 and 11||Years 7, 8 and 9|
|Wednesday, 17th March||Years 7 and 8||Years 9, 10 and 11|
|Thursday, 18th March||Year 9||Years 7, 8, 10 and 11|
|Friday, 19th March||No further in school testing||All students|
Staggered return for those not being tested
|Day/Date||Year groups on site|
|Monday, 8th March||None; remote learning only|
|Tuesday, 9th March||Years 10 and 11|
|Wednesday, 10th March||Years 7, 8, 10 and 11|
|Thursday, 11th March||All year groups|
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
