Monday 1st July 2020
Dear members of the Polygon School community,
It is wonderful that we are welcoming back more pupils this month. We now have almost a third of pupils back into regular attendance. For pupils who are still shielding, our on-line lessons and home-based work packs are still available.
The Governors have taken steps to ensure that those people using the school building are as safe as they possibly can be.
Temperatures will be taken from every person entering the building. Those with a high temperature will be returned home.
Children moving around the building will be limited, with most pupils spending the majority of their lessons in the same classroom.
Pupils will be issued with personal equipment for writing and drawing, to try to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
An additional member of domestic staff has been employed so there is a continual cleaning presence for all communal areas throughout the day.
Social distancing will be practiced.
Hand washing will be an expectation at the start of each lesson.
On Tuesday 14th July and Wednesday 15th July, between 10.00 and 2.00 pm we will be holding a wide range of fun workshops for pupils (and their parents) to participate in.
~ Creepy-crawly mini zoo ~Art and Craft workshop
~ Looking after yourself with a Health MOT (have your blood pressure and general fitness checked) and the opportunity to have your nails cared for.
~ Making a birdhouse ~ Sports with Saints Foundation.
~ Come and try the new Outdoor Gym equipment on the school field.
Year 11 Parent / Carers will be invited into school for the Leavers Assembly at 1.00 pm on Friday 17th July
The staff are to be commended on their professionalism throughout this difficult time. I hope you feel that they have worked together to ensure that you have felt supported.
Please keep checking the school website for messages.
Above all, stay safe. Anne Hendon-John. Headteacher
