Letter from Dennis O’Sullivan (Headteacher) – 13th August 2020

NEW TERM ARRANGEMENTS will not involve all Chauncy students in school every day.
I have been challenged by a senior government official on this and explained that we cannot keep 1200 students and 130 staff safe if they are all in school together.
We will now be regularly reporting our arrangements to you starting today with the timetable of which year group will be in school which days.

Thursday 3rd September 2020
Year 7 and Year 12 only

Friday 4th September 2020
Years 7, 10, 11, 12, 13 only
(no Year 8 or 9 – remote learning)

Monday 7th September 2020 – all week
Years 7, 10, 11, 12, 13 only
(no Year 8 or 9 – remote learning)

Monday 14th September 2020 – all week
Year 7, 8, 9, 11 & 13
(no Year 10 & 12 – remote learning)

Please note that Year 7 classes start at 8.15am each morning.

The students all have their timetable of lessons and we will offer the full curriculum on the days they are in.
This includes all the practical lessons that many schools will be forced to sacrifice.
On days when they are not in school the lessons will take place remotely \ on-line \ zoomed according to the timetable.
I have a duty of care to students and staff and I will do everything I can, and ask others to do likewise, in order to provide the high quality education for which we have worked so hard.
I know you will have lots of questions and I will be emailing you all regularly next week.
Urgent questions to head@chauncy.org.uk please.
Of course, government guidance will change, the virus may grow or decline and our arrangements will change to maintain safety and do the best we can.

Dennis O’Sullivan (Headteacher)
