Year 10 Reopening - A Guide for Students

We are really looking forward to having some of you back on the 15th June. This page explains how the school day will look and the steps that we’ve taken to reduce the risk of transmission and to keep everyone safe. This will hopefully alleviate any fears that you have about returning to school.

School uniform

School uniform will now consist of:

  • Black polishable shoes
  • White shirt
  • Black trousers or skirt

Note: you should not wear blazers or ties. Students should not bring a bag and all equipment will be provided by the school. Coats should also be left at home. If coats are brought, they will be handed in at the beginning of the school day and will be returned at the end of the day. These measures are in place to reduce the risk of transmission and to keep everyone safe.

Travelling to school

You should follow social distancing guidelines when travelling to school. You should only use public transport if it is necessary to do so and you live further than a half an hour walk away from the school. You should ensure that there is a gap of two metres or more between you and the nearest person at all times. You must not congregate in groups before school.

What happens when you arrive?

There are a number of stations which you will visit to make sure that we reduce the risk of transmission and keep everyone safe.

Arriving at school

When you arrive at school you should queue in the car park while you wait to go through the stations. In the queue you should ensure that you maintain a two metre gap between you and the nearest person.

Bollards 2

Station 1

Here you will be asked to hand over any coats or jackets. These will be stored and will be picked up at the end of the day. Gloves and masks will also be removed at this point. Current government guidelines say that masks do not need to be worn in school. Bringing the mask into school having worn it on public transport increases the risk of transmission and therefore it should be removed.

Station 2

There are new hand washing facilities at the front of the school. Here you will wash your hands for twenty seconds. This will remove any droplets from your hands which may contain traces of the virus.

Sink 2

Station 3

At station 3 we will check your temperature. If your temperature is high you will be sent home and will not return for a period of 7 days.


Station 4

At station 4 you will register, have a conversation about your work completion and then be sent to your classroom. You must go to your classroom immediately.

Moving around the school

The school looks very different to the last time you were present. All corridors and staircases are now one way. There are also two metre markings on the floor. You must ensure that you are at least two metres apart at all times. These rules are designed to reduce the risk of transmission and keep everyone safe. Failure to follow these rules will lead to you being sent home.

Moving 2

Moving 1


Classrooms also look very different. All of your lessons will take place in one classroom with the same group of students. The only thing that will change is your teacher. All classes will have a maximum of 15 desks for the 15 students within the lesson.

Lessons 1


The school will provide all equipment which you will keep until the summer holidays. This equipment will stay in your box at your desk and will not be touched by anyone else at any time.

Equipment 1

What will I learn?

The topics that you cover in lessons are those that are difficult to teach online. There will also be a chance to catch up on work that has been missed and to ask your teachers questions about things that you didn’t understand when studying online.

Online learning

Your online learning is still the main way that you will learn. This is because you will only be in school for 10 hours a week. It is essential that you continue to complete all tasks set at home. This will ensure that you progress at the same rate as the rest of your year group.

Mobile phones

You can bring your mobile phone. This is because it will be needed when the track and trace app is launched and it will be used as part of your lessons. Mobile phones can only be used if you are instructed to do so by your teacher.


The normal behaviour system will apply in lessons. However, if you fail to follow social distancing rules you will be sent home. You will not be allowed back into school until we have had a remote meeting with you and your parents, and we are confident that it is safe for you to return to school. This is to ensure that we reduce the risk of transmission and keep everyone safe. The full school behaviour policy here can be found on our student welfare page.


Leaving school

At the end of the lesson your teacher will release you one by one with a time gap between each student. You must not wait for others and you should make your way towards the exit immediately.

When you leave school, you must follow the one way system and maintain social distancing at all times.

Returning to station 2

You will return to station 2, wash your hands for 20 seconds before moving on. If you did not leave any belongings at station 1 you can leave site immediately.

Returning to station 1

If you left belongings at station 1 you will return to station 1 where a teacher will give you your bag containing your belongings. You must then leave the site immediately.

Once you leave the school site you must return home immediately. You must not congregate in groups and you must follow all social distancing guidelines.
