Year 12 - Dates for Return
08 Jun 2020
Thank you for the prompt return of the Google form. I am very encouraged that so far 87% of students indicate that they will be coming into school.
In my original plan, I had hoped to have all of Year 12 in for the full 2 weeks from 29th June. This, however, is not possible now. Yesterday we got clarification of what the government meant by a quarter of Year 10 and 12 students in school at any one time. It means a quarter of the total cohort of both years which for Ashby is 229. It is very clear in the guidance that we must not exceed this number so it is not possible to have all Year 12 back together.
I appreciate this is frustrating for everyone concerned but I am not able to increase the numbers. The only solution is to split the year group in half so the revised plan is:
Week beginning 29th June
All students in Bullen and Ferrers will attend school all week. They will follow their normal timetable so will receive five hours of lesson time per subject
Students in Hastings & Loudoun will have home study
Week beginning 6th July
All students in Hastings and Loudoun will attend school all week. They will follow their normal timetable so will receive five hours of lesson time per subject
Students in Bullen & Ferrers will have home study
I will send further information regarding the procedures we have put in place around the site nearer to the return date.
