I’m writing to keep you informed of the latest developments in our strategy for handling the impact of Coronavirus here at school. At the time of writing, we appear to have a relatively small number of staff who are absent and thanks to the efforts of our teachers, we are still running the full school timetable as normal. That said, we are in the advanced stages of preparing for either a partial or whole school closure and I will write to you again if either of these situations arise.
Nevertheless, the attendance of our students is declining sharply and so I am currently preparing advice and guidance on home learning. Our teachers are already uploading resources and work packs to ClassCharts, enabling your daughter to continue studying if she has to self-isolate. Individual subject overviews of the work provided to each year group will be available on the school website by Friday 20th March. We have also ensured that all our teachers are able to work from home so that they can continue to provide work for the foreseeable future, should we have a partial or full school closure.
On behalf of all everyone at PGHS, I would like to wish all our families well at this difficult time and reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure that your daughter’s education is not adversely affected. This is entirely due to the unstinting efforts and ongoing commitment of our staff over the coming weeks.
Mrs K Pomeroy
