Lockdown - Extra-Curricular Activities Nov 2020

Dear Parent / Carer,

Since the national lockdown was announced last Saturday the school has been seeking clarification as to whether extracurricular after school clubs and activities can continue to run during the forthcoming national lockdown period. The government guidance in this area is incredibly ambiguous, particularly in the area of sport, with conflicting guidance being given in two different government communications.

Unfortunately, despite intense lobbying from unions and other interested parties, the government continue to have a lack of clarity on their position. As a result the school is reluctantly forced to suspend all after school extracurricular clubs and activities (bar academic intervention groups and exam group work) for Thursday 5th November and for all subsequent days until the updated advice to schools is published by the Department for Education.
