Dear Parent/Carers

End of Term – 12 noon, Wednesday July 2021

I am writing to you to thank you all so much for the support you have given the school this academic year. This has been an extremely challenging year and term for us all and at times has tested us all in some way.

So, at this time of year we normally reflect on the year that has passed and look forward to the next academic year.  Personally, I am so thankful for the hard work, determination and resilience that the students and staff have shown this year despite all the unprecedented challenges, there have been so many.

We have all experienced the impact of bubbles isolation and staff isolation this year and in September 2021 based on the current Government guidance we will not need to isolate young people that are close contacts next year so that should have a positive impact on us all.

We are really looking forward to having the students learning in specialist rooms in September as we move back to the normal school routines.  I know some students are really excited about this.

The students have adapted so well to all the Covid 19 secure strategies we have had in place this year, and I am confident that they will adapt again as we return to moving around school.  We have kept the one way systems in school as we feel that it will ease transition and enable a calm return to new routines.  Please see the Opening September Document for more information.

We are also having a staggered start to enable LFT testing in school.

  • Year 7 and Year 8 return on the Tuesday 7th September 2021
  • Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 on Wednesday 8th September 2021

The children have been a true credit to all parents, carers and the community.  I am so proud of the Shevington Family and how we continue to work together to get through the ups and downs of this global pandemic.

Therefore, I would like to wish you all a lovely summer break.  I hope you all have a relaxing time and get a chance to recharge and refresh.  We are really  looking forward to returning in September to a new academic year and new term with refreshed enthusiasm, energy and hopes for the future.

This term will end on Wednesday 21st July.  School will close early at 12 noon and buses will be provided at this time.  Students that are entitled to free school meals are requested to purchase their lunch at break time.

Yours sincerely

Mr J Grant
