Unfortunately, individual students cannot change their sessions as it requires a very complicated rota to get all students and staff together. We have no wish to unpick it, not to see carefully planned class sizes grow to more risky levels. We would advise all students to attend, though the final decision rests with each family and non-attendance will not met with the normal formal processes.

Of course, home learning remains crucial and these in-school sessions are designed to support that effort, not replace it. The resources from the sessions will be put online in the usual format. We will also set optional work to cover over the summer holiday. It will be revision work though staff will not be available to mark it or give feedback until September.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We have planned this return very carefully and are taking great care to ensure that everyone is facing risks which are reduced as much as is feasible. Of course, every parent makes their own choice, but I can say I would say, knowing all we have put in place, that I would choose to send my own children into school.”

If you have any queries, then please email Carrie Cain, Assistant Headteacher, on ccain@friaryschool.co.uk and we will look to address them as swiftly as we can.
