Introduction

We are very pleased that we are reopening in March. We have missed seeing and teaching your daughters and sons. We are looking forward to gathering the school back together again, albeit remaining with the earlier adaptations to ensure we are COVID-19 secure.

 

  •          Years 10-13 will be returning to school on Tuesday, 9th March.
  •          Years 7-9 will be returning to school on Friday, 12th March.
 

The system of controls that have been in place since September remain in place for the March reopening. These are detailed in this website, and include year group hubs, one-way systems, and hand sanitisers. The new national expectation of face coverings being worn in classrooms as well as communal areas has been in operation in Southampton schools since November.

 

The biggest change for the March Reopening will be the new weekly saliva testing as part of the Hampshire and isle of Wight Saliva Testing Programme. 

 

As a reminder, the expectation that all members of a school remain 2 metres apart at all times stopped at the start of September. It is impossible to manage this is schools due to the size of classrooms. Instead, schools must "properly consider" how to "minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible" and must "put in place measures that suit their particular circumstances." We are taking into account our particular circumstances as we plan our risk assessment, which is available below.

 

This information is divided into sections on this site. Alternatively, there is a video version below.
