Contingency plan to enable students to continue their education in the event of a school closure due to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) – Year 8

It is our expectation that students who are well but self-isolating due to other family members being ill or who are at home due to a school closure will continue to use their time to study the subjects on their timetable. The plans to support this for a short-term closure are outlined below. If schools are ordered to close for a longer time these arrangements will be reviewed.
