On Tuesday 19th July Y7-10 lessons will take place online
This means that pupils in these years are not expected to physically come to school tomorrow. They are expected to attend their lesson via Google Classroom if they remain at home.
The reason for this is that the forecast is for higher temperatures earlier in the day tomorrow. Many of our classrooms are becoming extremely hot and this will only increase given the high overnight temperatures expected. I am making the decision on the basis of the welfare and safety of pupils and staff.
It will be a shortened day with p1-4 and the PSHE lesson taking place via Google Classroom. Pupils will need to log on to their Google Classroom to access their learning. Information on how to access online lessons is available here.
School will remain open if parents want their child to come into school.
Y12 are expected to come in for their morning sessions.
Pupils who do come to school will be expected to access their online lessons via school computer, in some of our cooler classrooms.
It is important that we know which pupils to expect in school tomorrow.
I am therefore asking all parents to complete a straightforward Google Form stating whether your child is remaining at home or coming to school on Tuesday 19 July, 2022. The form can be accessed via this link.
The following apply for the whole of next week:
1. We are advising pupils to apply a high factor sun cream for the occasions when they are out of doors
2. We strongly advise all pupils to bring a water bottle with them and ensure that they drink regularly throughout the day, to avoid dehydration.
Water taps are available around the school which pupils can use at breaktime and lunchtime to refill their bottles.
We are for the next few days selling single use water bottles for those pupils who forget their water bottles
3. Pupils are advised to eat as normal
4. Pupils are allowed to wear a hat
In addition to this we will take all steps that we can to reduce heat in classrooms and to avoid pupils engaging in vigorous physical activity.
