Heatwave changes for Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July 2022 - Update

Heatwave changes for Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July 2022
Due to the extreme changes, Tapton School Academies Trust are making the following changes to school on Monday and Tuesday.
1. All trips and visits are postponed. This includes the rewards trip to Flamingo Land on Monday. We will rebook for September. 
2. School will close at the beginning of period 4 - 12.55pm. If students need to stay in school until the end of the day due to travel arrangement needs, staff will be available in school to supervise them. Please ring or email school on to let us know if you will require your child to stay in school on either or both afternoons.
3. Only cold food will be available at break and lunch. 
3. Students are free to wear PE kit, and a hat. 
4. Water will be available to students all day, so they should bring a refillable water bottle. 
5. We are taking all possible steps with windows and blinds to keep rooms as cool as possible, and will be closely monitoring the situation room to room, rerooming to cooler spaces where necessary. 
6. Activities in lesson will try to avoid creating additional heat, for example in Science, Food Technology, and in PE.
We aim to keep all adults and children as safe and comfortable as possible in school. Thank you for supporting us as we manage this unusual situation together.
