Government announcement 30th December 2020
As you know the government made an announcement yesterday about changes to the start of term. They have delayed the return to school for students in order to:
“allow schools more time to focus on preparations for additional coronavirus testing and provide a longer period following Christmas to reduce mixing ahead of a return to full-time on-site education for all.”
Although Trinity School is involved in the pilot testing programme, infection rates have increased over the break leading to Cumbria being placed in Tier 4 restrictions. This means that we must follow the DFE guidance published yesterday regarding the phased return to school and school will not now reopen on Thursday 7th January as initially planned. I apologise for the lack of notice and hope that you understand that we are having to respond to last minute and complex government guidance. More information about the phased start of term is later in this letter.
