Our plans for a safe return in the autumn

Following the recent announcements by the government, Manor High School is ready to provide details for the start of the new term. The Secretary of State for Education referred to “business as usual”. The school has worked to ensure that the return by all pupils will be as safe as possible and that learning and catch-up work are promoted and driven forwards. The plans are subject to change, depending upon further government instruction. 

Full details of our safe return in autumn plans can be found on our Covid-19 page. The plan:

  • Shows how the school will minimise pupil and staff movement to almost zero on each school day
  • Allows for a smooth transition in the event of future lockdowns which may arise from outbreaks of the virus
  • Facilitates online learning for families and pupils by giving each day a single subject focus in the event of a future lockdown
  • Contains the start dates and arrangements for pupils, depending upon their year group

We agree with the government view that education in school is essential for all children. We are delighted that all of our pupils will return, subject to guidance from the government and from Public Health England. We look forward to working with you all again in the new year. We will expect all pupils to be in full uniform. We advise that government recommendations for washing of clothes and personal hygiene are followed, fully. 

The school has responded to changes in government guidance with careful consideration. We have made safety and learning paramount.
