Arthur Mellows Village College

Delivering learning for life within an aspirational culture

School Re-opening Arrangements - September 2020

Start Dates

It has been decided that we will have a staggered start for students on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 September 2020.  We feel this is essential in allowing us to embed health and safety practices and ensure wellbeing and general concerns are thoroughly covered.  By giving students a day with their Form Tutors, they can be fully prepared for how the school day will run, their role in keeping themselves and others safe, plus have time to talk through any difficulties faced during lockdown or anxieties about returning.

In order to facilitate this safely and relay key information, we will only have certain Year Groups in each day:
 
•    Monday 7 September 2020: Year 9, Year 10, Year 11, Year 13 only
•    Tuesday 8 September 2020: Year 7, Year 8 and Year 12 only
•    Wednesday 9 September 2020: all students
 
For those students who will not be in College on Tuesday, appropriate work will be set.  
 
Whilst we understand how eager your son/daughter is to make the full return to College, I am sure you will understand the guiding principle of putting everyone’s safety and wellbeing first.  We believe, therefore, it is a priority to give all students a full day of guidance, information and support before the academic curriculum resumes on Wednesday 9 September 2020.
