Since the government released its guidance we have been working very hard at developing a model that will allow us to deliver a full curriculum, keeping students in “Year Bubbles”, facilitating social distancing of one metre between students (where possible) and two metres between students and staff, and enable more than 1000 students to move around our building safely.
The following information outlines the way in which Codsall High will be open to all students from September and how we will accommodate the movement of different year groups.
Please note – parents should not send their child into school if they or any member of their household is showing signs of Covid 19.
Anyone who develops symptoms of Covid 19 must inform the school so that we can take appropriate action and inform Public Health England.
Due to the need to ensure that students are kept in their bubbles we strongly urge parents to ensure that their children are not onsite more than 10 minutes before their first lesson.
Questions parents / carers may have:
Why have you structured your day in this way?
How will lunchtimes & breaks work?
How will lessons work?
How will the school ensure that students are following health guidelines?
How will transport work?
Will there be additional lessons put on to allow students to catch up on the work that they have missed?
What about after school clubs and extracurricular activities?
Government guidance is currently that schools should avoid extra-curricular clubs and fixtures.
What preparations are the school making in case of a further lockdown?
Who will be looking after my child’s pastoral needs if tutor time has been suspended?
A point worth highlighting is that we cannot and will not accept behaviour from students which endangers the wellbeing of other students, either physical or mental. Normal school routines will have been absent for a number of students who will be with us in September and it is vital therefore, that behaviour is outstanding from all upon our return.
Below are the ground floor and first floor plans showing the one way system that will be adhered to by staff and students from September 2020.
