Vaccinated Pupils & Whole Day Teaching

17th August 2021

We are very much looking forward to welcoming your children back to school and continuing to build their knowledge and skills through enjoyable and stimulating in-person learning for its own sake, and for building their skills for beginning their IGCSEs in Year 10.

In accordance with EDB instructions, learning will take place for all pupils on a half-day timetable on our return on 24th August. With the permission of the EDB, however, we may teach for the whole day those classes in which 70% of pupils have been double vaccinated.

Undoubtedly, it is our wish to provide whole-day face-to-face teaching, particularly as we have been directed by the EDB not to provide online learning.

Therefore we would like you to complete the attached survey below, and return the same to us by 21st August. Whilst we ask for names on the survey, and vaccination details, all responses will be dealt with in the strictest confidence, the details solely to aid us in our approaches to the EDB.

Assuming we meet the criteria, and the EDB give their permission, we shall begin the whole day teaching of Yr 8 and/or 9, after 6th September. We shall begin on a Monday so that you will have time to amend personal schedules.

I thank you in advance for your support and understanding, and assure you of our dedication to providing the excellence in education you expect.

Headmaster (Designate)
