Year 10

Letter to Year 10s from Mr Walker - June 2020

Non-Uniform Guidelines

Message to Year 10 Parents 4-6-2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope this update finds you and your family well. 

As you know, our revised provisional date for re-opening to year 10 students is now week beginning 15th June 2020. The change in our proposed opening date is in response to the changing guidance throughout last week, the developing scientific evidence and the update from the Prime Minister. Whilst it remains our intention to open as soon as possible, this will only happen when it is safe to do so. Therefore all dates are provisional at this stage.

We have now revised our planned operational model to ensure staff and students are safe when we reopen.  Our new operational model is as follows:

  • Only ¼ of year 10 will attend school on any day.  That is a maximum of 62 students
  • That means that ¼ of year 10 will attend on a Monday, a different ¼ on a Tuesday, another ¼ on a Thursday and the final ¼ will attend on a Friday
  • Students and staff will work with the same group of students and staff, a ‘bubble’ each time they attend Babington.  This principle is important in our risk assessment, keeping students and staff in ‘bubbles’ restricts the number of people they will come into contact with
  • There will be a maximum of 10 students in each class.  Your child will stay in the classroom and the teacher will come to the classroom to teach your child
  • Students and staff will arrive and leave at staggered times along with other people in their ‘bubble’
  • Each bubble will be located in an area in school for instance there will be a Yellow Bubble, a Blue Bubble and an orange Bubble.  This will ensure that your child only mixes with other students and staff in their ‘bubble’
  • Timings of the school day will be altered to stagger students entry and exit
  • Students will have five, forty-five minute lessons in a class of ten or less students
  • Students will sit in class, one to a desk, with a maximum of ten desks in a classroom
  • Students will have one break during the day.  This will be a working lunch, in the dining room, with teaching staff. Lunchtimes will rightly feel very different to ensure social distancing.  Students will not be going outside to socialise

 

You will receive a letter in the post by early next week with the details of the day and time your son/daughter is on the rota to attend school.  This letter with give details about the ‘Bubble’ that your child will be in.  You will see that I have uploaded an amended frequently asked questions document on the website.  I strongly urge you to take a look at the document as it has been amended in response to the changing Government guidance.

Please note that students who have conditions which mean they are clinically extremely vulnerable should not attend school.  In addition, if your family is shielding a person within your home who is clinically extremely vulnerable, you should not send your child to school.

I would like to thank you for your ongoing support.  As always, we want the very best for your child at Babington and I am very much looking forward to welcoming your son/daughter to Babington for the start of this provision.

Keep safe

Sara Fletcher

ACCLAIM

The document below gives several ACCLAIM based projects which it would be great to see being completed from home. ACCLAIM is a programme which our students are familiar with, and it would be great to see students carrying out some of these tasks with their families. There are also links alongside some activities which may be useful in finding additional resources to help complete these.
