Year 10 Work Experience

17 March 2020

Dear Parent

Year 10 Work Experience – W/C 20 April 2020

I have today had to make the very regretful decision to cancel work experience for Year 10. This is based on the current government guidance in relation to COVID-19 and concerns being raised to us in school from placement providers and parents. I am sure you will understand the need to make this decision as early as possible to help both students, parents and placements.

We will not be able to rearrange this valuable experience for students this academic year or in Year 11. Due to challenges in school at this time, we have not yet been able to communicate this to students directly and I would be most grateful if you can discuss this regretful decision with your child. We will meet with students as soon as we are able as a Year group. The school will be making contact with providers in relation to this final decision and informing our insurers also.

This now means that ALL students are expected to be in school as normal in the week of 20 April and that no one should be undertaking work experience at this time regardless of how any placements have been arranged.

I wish that there was an alternative to this decision and thank you for your support

Mr Pierpoint
