September 2020 Re-opening

At Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School we always want to do our best for our young people and as you can appreciate reopening a school to operate at full capacity with the current restrictions in place has provided us with a challenge. However, it is one we feel we have overcome and we aim to offer as ‘normal’ a school provision as we can. I have a duty of care I take very seriously and that is around the health, safety and wellbeing of your child but also around providing the very best education for them. Throughout this guidance booklet, whilst I understand that it is long and comprehensive, I have tried to ensure I have covered everything with a clear a rationale as possible. It will take time to digest and I know you will have questions – which is absolutely fine and you must ask them.

It is so important to me that you understand the guidance but also that I have your full support and backing. Every decision that has been made is in the best interests of the child. As a school the staff are being as flexible as possible to accommodate all my requests to do everything we can to ensure the young people catch up. They all also want the very best for your child and will be there every step of the way to support this transitional period back into school.

The first section is all around how Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School will meet the Government Guidance, so you can see we are doing everything properly. This will hopefully alleviate any worries or concerns you have. The second section will be around how this works in practice and will timings, zones etc. I am always available to answer any queries you might have and please do not hesitate to contact me
