Letter from the Headteacher
23rd October 2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support during this half term. Working together we have succeeded in keeping school and college open to students without the need to suspend any of our bubbles. Whilst some students and staff have had contact with positive Covid cases, so far we have been lucky in avoiding any positive cases in school. With the rise in local cases it is highly likely this position will change, but we are well prepared and supported by Trafford Public Health when the time comes.
We have followed government guidance throughout this time, and in doing so have had to ask a number of parents and carers to take their son/daughter for a test, and to self isolate whilst awaiting results. Whilst we appreciate the inconvenience this causes, we value your co-operation in supporting us to keep the school and college safe.
We are doing our utmost to deliver a full curriculum in school and college, with some modifications to community participation and access to our hydrotherapy pool and soft play. Looking forward to next term we would like to ensure our students get lots of opportunities to celebrate Christmas and other key festivals and events. We are working with department co-ordinators to ensure that alongside our curriculum students don’t miss out on some of the key events that are so important to them for socialising and fun. Indeed today we were able to celebrate Hallowe’en and some of our students even managed to do trick or treating in corridors within their bubbles.
I would like to wish you all a healthy and enjoyable half term break.
