All the staff at Thomas Telford School look forward to welcoming our students back on a phased basis from Monday 8 March, in year groups as follows:
Monday 8 March – Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9
Tuesday 9 March – Year 11 and Year 13
Wednesday 10 March – Year 10 and Year 12
This phased return to school for students has been set out in order to ensure the necessary testing can be carried out in line with government guidance.
We have organised to start the testing programme for students on their first day of return where parents have given their consent. The tests will be taken three times within the two week period. After this cycle, students will be provided with home testing kits in order to carry out a COVID-19 test twice weekly before coming into school.
Coaches from Wolverhampton will be running as normal for students and a Session 3 programme will be introduce from Monday 15 March. Students can continue to come to school wearing their tracksuit, on days they have Physical Education.
Can we also take the opportunity to remind students that they must continue to wear face masks while in classrooms and around school.
Working in alignment with the government road map, Thomas Telford School will reintroduce aspects of normal school life over the course of the summer term. We are very much looking forward to being able to hold Sports Day, Arts Nights, TTS has got Talent, Achievement Evening, assemblies, trips and visits and many other events that our students, parents and staff have missed out on over the course of this academic year. We do not take lightly the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our students and we will endeavor to return to the events that make Thomas Telford School the special place that supports and helps shape the lives of our students in so many positive ways.
Please continue to take care.
Sir Kevin Satchwell Headmaster
