Staffing Difficulties - Friday 27 November

Important Information about Friday 27 November 

Due to staffing difficulties as a result of the number of staff required to self-isolate, the main school will only be able to open tomorrow, Friday 27 November, to students in years 7, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 13.  This is to ensure adequate safe supervision and cover of classes.  Students in year 10 should study at home on Friday 27 November and will be expected to complete work set in MS Teams and take part in any live lessons as per their normal timetable.  A significant amount of staff cover was required for year 10 lessons tomorrow.  This decision has been taken with great reluctance and we appreciate that this is not the news that year 10 parents/carers would want to receive.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  Rise@GHC will remain open to all year groups.

Unless you have been contacted as a result of your son/daughter being identified as a close contact of the confirmed case, the school remains open for students in years 7, 8, 9, 11,12 and 13 and your child should continue to attend if they are well. 

Performance review takes place on Monday 30 November and Tuesday 01 December.  We will update on the arrangements for Wednesday 02 December closer to the time, but if further year groups are required to study at home in future then this will be on a rotation as far as possible.
