Dear Parents, in line with all schools in Worcestershire I have been asked to share this letter regarding child care arrangements with you.
I have, this evening, received information from the DFE in the form of a FAQ page where they explain what is likely to happen with the awarding of GCSE and A Level grades this year. I have copied it below for your information. We do not have any more information than this at present and I know you will still have concerns about this; please avoid emailing us with questions as we simply have no further information at this stage. As and when I get more details I will update you.

I hope that you have enjoyed some of the spring sunshine and remain healthy.

New guidance for households with symptoms from gov.uk (17th March 2020)
Yesterday, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:
· if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started
· if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
· for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.
The symptoms are:
· A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)
· A new, continuous cough
The full stay at home guidance for households with these symptoms can be found here:
In light of current concerns regarding possible interruption to the British education system due to the COVID-19 outbreak we wanted to remind you that there is a period set aside by the Joint Council for Qualifications for GCSE and A Level exam contingency. This means that in the event of any disruption to the exam timetable, either nationally or locally, students must be available from the date of their first exam until Wednesday 24th June should any exams have to be rescheduled.
School will be closed to students for a PDD on Friday 20th March.
