Updates during school closures

Here we have some additional updates from our senior leaders during the school closures.


23/03/20  To avoid our students squashing into the PE changing rooms, we are relaxing school uniform rules. From Tuesday onwards please can you send your child to school in sporty clothing. Named Water bottles are also essential please.

05/06/20  We continue to be very busy at Ivanhoe and numbers are increasing week on week as keyworkers return to work. This is allowing us to trial safety systems ready for a fuller return in September. At this point we have had no clarity about what that might look like but we will be keeping you updated as things develop.

If the guidance allows us to open fully at the start of the new term, Year 7 transition will be prioritised:

  • Year 7 will return on 26/27th August and will effectively be in their tutor “bubble”
  • Year 8 will return on Friday 28th August
  • Year 9 will return on Tuesday 1st September.

This will allow us to transition all year groups back more effectively.

However, we are developing contingency plans to sub divide year groups into “bubbles” in the event of continued need for social distancing measures in Aug/Sept. We will continue to keep you updated about all eventualities as the National picture on Covid develops.
