 Uplands School - Return to School Plan for September 2020


Weeks 1 and 2 of Term
The plan for the return to school is detailed below:- 

Tuesday 1st September is a staff training day where we are not open to any students.   

The schedule for the rest of week 1 and 2 is detailed below.  The reason for this gradual return beyond the transition days is to give us an opportunity to test out our operational guidelines with a phased increase in numbers and to enable us to make any adjustments as required.  This is obviously extremely important for the safety of the whole community.  Where possible, we would ask for the young people of key workers to attend in accordance with the plan below, but should this not be possible, please contact your young person’s class teacher and we will work to provide school on the days that you need it to cover your working days.

We are working with transport and have communicated this plan with them.  However, in terms of the detail, it is the responsibility of parents to ensure that transport knows the requirements for your young person, particularly if you are a key worker or are wanting a more bespoke or gradual plan. If you are planning to bring your young person to school by car, please arrive at 9:30 and collect again at 2:00 pm to avoid congestion with the buses.
