Re-opening of School for Year 10 and Year 12

It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome both our Year 12 and Year 10 students back onto the school sites in recent weeks. Both returns have run extremely smoothly. Virtually every sixth form student has returned to morning classes on the Whitby Sixth Form site, and well over 80% of our Year 10 are now attending the Normanby site one morning a week for English, maths and science tutorials alongside help with some of their optional subjects. Both year groups will undoubtedly be better prepared for the important academic year that lies ahead of them because of the face-to-face contact we’ve been able to put in place this summer.

School re-openings

As you will no doubt now be aware, the government has signalled that it would like secondary schools to introduce some ‘face-to-face support’ for students in Year 10 and 12 from 15 June at the earliest. However, its guidance goes to say that the numbers of students attending from each year group at any one time should be limited to a quarter of the cohort. We are finalising plans for what form this ‘face- to-face’ support will take for both year groups, carrying out risk assessments and consulting with staff. We hope to be in a position to share these plans with students and parents later in the week.

It’s now almost two months since schools closed to combat the spread of the coronavirus. At time of writing, we are still awaiting detailed guidance from the government about how secondary schools might go about re-opening for some ‘face-to-face’ catch-ups and/or teaching with students in Year 10 and 12 this summer. Once this guidance has been published, we will be working with colleagues in the local authority to carry out risk assessments on both sites before we can develop any proposals for re-opening.
