Dear Parents/Guardians

Re: Update on the re-opening of Esher High School for Year 10 students

You may have heard or read that the advice from the government about school re-opening changed over the weekend.  This means that the earliest date for Year 10 students to return in some form to the school will be on Monday 15 June, rather than our original proposed return date of 8 June.

I was encouraged to read that the guidance is for a maximum of a quarter of the students, that this can be on a rota, and that it should be to supplement ongoing remote learning – all aspects that we had already planned for, and were modelling our provision on.

Please refer to our FAQ document below if you have questions regarding the Year 10 students' return to school.

Other arrangements remain as they were and we will continue to support all our students, regardless of their year, through remote learning and in school for vulnerable and key worker children.

Kind regards

Mr M Boddington

Headteacher
