On Monday 22 February, the Prime Minister made an announcement that schools would be able to open to all students from 8 March. We were delighted with the decision and we are looking forward to welcoming all students back to full time education. Returning to school is vital for our students’ education and for their wellbeing. Time out of school is detrimental for young people’s cognitive, social and academic development, no matter how hard teachers work to provide remote learning.
Returning to HCC
You will have seen in the media that in order for students to return to school, they are expected to undertake lateral flow tests, each one being 3 to 5 days apart. The first test should be taken before they start back in their lessons. This testing programme is not compulsory and consent must be given. However, it is strongly recommended because the tests identify asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 and participating in this programme will help us to reduce the risk of transmission. We will be conducting the first three tests in school, after which students will be expected to take the test at home.
In order to offer the first test to every student before the full curriculum and timetable can resume, we are staggering the start of the return to school for different year groups.
- Monday 8 March 2021 – The school will be open for Year 7, 10 and 11 ONLY. Remote learning will continue for Year 8 and 9.
- Tuesday 9 March 2021 – The school be open for Year 7, 8 and 9 ONLY. Remote learning will be in place for Year 10 and 11 on this day.
- Wednesday 10th March 2021 – All students to attend school and the full curriculum and timetable will resume.
Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust ‘Meet the Buyer’ events for M&E four-year multi supplier framework contract for all schools in the Trust.
The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust, in conjunction with the Schools’ Buying Hub SW (funded by the Department for Education) will be hosting a series of Meet the Buyer events to which interested parties are invited. The focus is specifically on mechanical, electrical and general building contractors for a four year multi-supplier framework contract for all schools in the Trust, envisaged from 1 June 2021. There will be a short introduction to the Trust, our family of schools and the scope and timeline of the invitation to tender, as well an opportunity to hear from all interested parties, especially SMEs, to help us shape our invitation to tender. We hope the event will create more transparency with our tendering process and increase the focus on delivering social value.
