Our staff have all been in school today preparing resources and classrooms and we are really excited to see our students next week. This week there have been all sorts of preparations to ensure the transition back into school goes smoothly. We know a number of students are a bit nervous about the lateral flow testing so we hope our video showing students exactly what to do will help, see it here: Lateral Flow Testing Video at JOG
We have been so proud of how our young people have engaged with their online learning throughout this period of lock down but to be honest we won’t be sad to say goodbye to the online learning! I have often said that schools are not just a set of buildings, they are the students that fill them. Next week, we can now look forward to filling our buildings once again with our wonderful students!
We understand that many students will be experiencing a mixture of emotions after the recent announcement about returning to school. Please find attached a 'How to prepare for the return to school' document which will hopefully provide your child some guidance, advice and useful information about how to prepare for this. This document has also been shared with students via Class Charts this morning.
Remember if you have any particular questions or worries then do email your child's tutor as the first point of contact.
