As we are not able to hold a Y10 Information Evening in the usual way in school, please follow the link to view a filmed presentation of the information you would have received: https://trinity.cumbria.sch.uk/y10-information-evening/
Having watched the flow of bubbles in and out of school, we feel that we can alter the start/end of day times to give more time in school. Please see the new times for some year groups highlighted below:
15th September 2020
Children should not attend school if they have at least one of the coronavirus symptoms which are:
- a high temperature (37.8°C or above. If you don’t have a thermometer, feeling hot to the touch on your chest or back is a good indicator of a high temperature)
- a new, continuous cough (this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Inappropriate Social Media Activity
We have been alerted to the fact that extremely disturbing and inappropriate material is being circulated between students, across various social media platforms. This is causing distress to many.
Please be aware of the advice we are sharing with students below, in support of your own ongoing vigilance at home.
Instrumental/singing lessons will resume in school next week.
Students studying A-level and GCSE music receive a weekly instrumental lesson, as part of their course, free of charge. For other students there is a charge for these lessons and those taking them will either be invoiced by school or by the instrumental/singing teacher.
Woodwind, Brass, Guitar and Cello lessons are provided by the music service and for these lessons you will be invoiced by school. The charges for these lessons are
Group lesson – £10 per week
Individual lesson – £20 per week

HOME TO SCHOOL TRANSPORT
Due to Social Distancing guidelines, to reduce the spread of COVID19, capacity on local bus services is now much reduced.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Returning to school safely in September
The past six months have been unprecedented and the closure of schools put huge pressure on parents and carers trying ensure their children’s education continued at home. Thank you to all of you.
Government policy is that all schools will reopen to all pupils in September. This is good news. But while many children and young people will be looking forward to getting back, meeting friends and restarting classes, we know that some will be anxious about returning. The same may be true for parents and carers.

26th August 2020
Following the change in government advice late yesterday, we are reviewing the school’s position on face coverings. As the announcement was made in the media before letting schools know directly, we will need to review the detail of the updated government guidance before making a final decision on this issue. Please note that it is likely that government guidance may change over the coming weeks as schools return and we will update the information sent yesterday on a regular basis and let you know each time this happens. The guidance on the website (using the coronavirus updates tab) will always be the most up to date version and is dated in the bottom left hand corner for clarity. Thank you for your patience.
