Library Reopening

To ensure that the library remains a Covid-safe area, some measures have been put into place so as to maintain the relevant social distancing rules and to prevent mixing between the year group bubbles. The library is open to Year 9 students at break time and lunchtime on Friday

Due to the close spacing of the area, there are to be only two students permitted to enter the library at any one time. We ask students to follow the one-way circular guide that has been marked out on the floor, as well as using the dedicated entrance and exit gates, and hand sanitiser upon entrance

Reading Cloud Library Account

Don’t forget that all students now have access to their very own library account! This means that you can now log on, and have instant access to the school library stock, write book reviews, and make book reservations. (When you reserve a book, the librarian will deliver the book to you during tutor time when it becomes available).

COVID 19 Safety Measures and Behaviour Expectations

  • When you enter and exit each building and all of your classrooms; ensure you have used the sanitiser. You can bring in your own sanitiser but make sure it is strong enough to kill any harmful bacteria.
  • All buildings have a one-way system in place to ensure that corridor contact is minimised. Central stairs are used to go up and the stairwells are used to go down. You must follow this system.
  • When you enter a classroom, use an antibacterial wipe to clean your table and chair.
  • Face coverings must be worn in the buildings at all times including in lessons
  • Ensure you stay in your ‘bubble’. You have been allocated a dedicated space before school, during lesson times and at break and lunch.
  • The restaurant will be open as usual. Eating and socialising must take place in your allocated area. Do not queue with students from other year groups (leave a 2m gap). Do not share food.
  • Please click here to access the behaviour expectations, including the uniform policy.
