Coming up This Week
Lateral Flow Testing: Following the success of the asymptomatic testing programme on the return to school in March, it is vital to keep testing at home throughout the Easter holidays and into the summer term.
– Continue to test twice a week at home (all those who are able to)
– Report results online as positive, negative or void. This information is critical in helping to understand the prevalence of the virus across the country
– Continue to test twice weekly over the Easter holidays
– Ensure a test is completed before returning to school or college after the Easter break, either the night before, or morning of, the first day back, to find and isolate any positive cases
Year 9 Video Parents’ Evening: Our Year 9 Video Parents’ Evenings take place on 29th April (A Side) and 6th May (B Side). Parents should have received login codes to School Cloud, via email, to enable you to book your appointments. Closing date is Monday 26th April 2021 so please book your slots.
Year 10 Pre-Public Exam Week: This will take place in the week beginning Monday 21st After the Easter holidays, there will be lots more guidance and support sent home and shared with students in school to help them prepare. It would be good for all Year 10 students to come back ready and prepared for revision in the summer term, by locating and organising all their exercise books and revision guides etc over the Easter holidays. If you have any questions about the PPE process ahead of the information being shared, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Lakin for further support.
Year 11 Lockers: As students are unable to access their lockers we are starting the procedure of retrieving the locker keys from Year 11s a little earlier than normal. Students are being asked to hand their keys (in envelopes with names on) in to their Form Tutors. Students must not access their lockers as they should not be crossing Learning Zones, therefore if a student still has contents in their locker which they need to retrieve, they should inform their Form Tutor and arrangements will be made for them to collect.
Free School Meal Holiday Support Fund: A huge thank you to our wonderfully generous community. There has been £1216.40 donated thus far to the #WeAreCHS FSM Holiday Support Fund. This fund is used exclusively to support families through holiday periods. It is still open on ParentPay for anyone else wishing to donate and is entirely voluntary.
