Full Reopening of School

 

Following the recent guidance from the Government on COVID-19, Welling School will be fully open to all students from September 2020. This means that every year group will be able to attend, every day. This is vital for your child’s education and wellbeing and is something that has been welcomed across the school community. Please see a letter from Mr Pett with full details on how the school will operate from September - letter can be found HERE.

Our return dates are as follows:
 

Wednesday 2 September INSET DAY - School Closed to Students

Friday 4 September Year 7 Return
Monday 7 September Year 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 return to school

What action you can take?

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
