School Reopening September 2020
I hope that you have all managed to enjoy family time without the intrusion of home schooling over the summer holidays, and despite the ever present threat of Covid-19 have managed to stay safe and well. As incredible as it may seem, it is now time to set preparations in motion for when school re-opens in just over a week, which for all students (with the exception of EYFS), is Thursday 3rd September.
At Holy Trinity, we are extremely excited to be re-opening the school and welcome back returning families, a welcome that we extend to new families who will be joining the school without the usual induction process that would normally have taken place over the summer term. Whilst we were able to open the school to most Year groups prior to the summer holidays, we are looking forward to becoming complete, with the Holy Trinity family being united once again. It is going to be an exciting, strange and difficult time in which people will need to re-discover routines, expectations and even confidence. To this end, I would like to reassure everyone that we will do our upmost to ensure that students at Holy Trinity return to a safe, secure and welcoming environment and one that is listening and supportive, addressing collective and individual needs or concerns.
Our priority as a school will be to ensure that our students and families are once again able to interact effectively and in a way that will enable our young people to become proactive and independent learners, who re-establish aspirations and experience the simple joy of learning. However, we fully appreciate the task that is ahead of us and our key priority above all else will be to help and support our students during this time of transition and reintegration. The well-being of all members of the school community is of paramount importance and will require a strong working relationship between home and school. At Holy Trinity, we have always been blessed with real strength in our community with excellent relationships that support the education of our students, something that is going to be essential in the months ahead.
As a school. We have been working hard over the summer break to ensure that the school is ready to open whilst taking into account the additional measures imposed through the restrictions of Covid -19. Whilst we have completed risk assessments and developed plans, it is inevitable that there will be further changes given the unpredictable nature of the virus. However, please be assured that we continue to update our policies and procedures in line with the latest DFE and Health Authorities advice.
