Open events for Year 6 pupils and their families at St Anselm’s Catholic School - September 2020
Ordinarily we would be offering an open evening and a series of open mornings for prospective pupils and their families during September and October. As a result of the restrictions placed on us by managing the risk of Covid-19, this will not be possible this year. We cannot have large numbers of people on the site simultaneously for an open evening. Equally, in order to preserve the integrity of our year-group ‘bubbles’, it is not possible for us to have visitors moving around the site while lessons are being delivered.
We have provided a ‘virtual’ open day for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. These resources can be found here. We hope that this will be sufficient for the majority of families to get a sense of what our school can offer and of our vision and ambition for our pupils.
We recognise though that choosing a secondary school is a big decision for children and that some of you may benefit from being able to see the school. Therefore, we intend to offer a series of ‘open afternoons’ at the end of September and through October. Capacity will be limited and will be offered on a first-come first-served basis. These will be available between Monday 28 September up to and including Thursday 22 October 2020 after school from 4.00pm until 5.00pm.
A member of staff will be available to take a small group of parents/carers and their child around the site for a 45-minute tour. For the reasons outlined above, these tours will take place after our pupils have gone home. All visitors will be required to wear masks and to follow our social distancing and hand-sanitising protocols.
If you wish to book at tour, please contact email@example.com with at least three dates/times that you would be able to visit. This will allow us to meet all requests and to keep numbers in groups small.
We wish you well with what is bound to be a difficult process this year. If we can provide you with any further advice or guidance, we will be happy to do so; simply contact the school office with your query and someone will get in touch with you.
With all best wishes,
Mr M Walters Mr J Rowarth
Executive Principal Academy Principal
