  Parent Update - Face Coverings 
Dear Parent/Carer
 
Following the updated guidance from the Government relating to the wearing of face coverings in public we are amending our position from strongly recommending the wearing of face coverings when in internal communal areas to requiring them to be worn in these areas. This will apply from Monday 5th October 2020.
 
This follows the Government advice and that from the World Health Organisation.
 
You will find full details in the Tor Bridge High Expectations on Face Coverings attached with this letter. READ MORE
 
 
  Advice from Department of Education 
Dear parents and guardians,
 
This is an important letter to share some information on how we can work together to make sure we can continue to give children and young people the best education in the safest way possible.
 
One important part of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of pupils, parents and our communities is testing for coronavirus. We all have a duty to make sure that the right people have access to get tested at the right time. Every time a test is used inappropriately, a person with Covid-19 symptoms may miss out on getting tested.

Huge congratulations to:
 
Isabella, Alex Maisy Andrew, Freya, James, Lily
 
They all completed their 2 day Bronze DofE assessed expedition over the weekend and passed with flying colours! It is always a challenge, but this year was especially difficult as our students had not done a great deal of navigational training since the lockdown in March – Sunday alone they covered 16K all by themselves and did not get lost – they also managed to put up a tent and cooked a hot meal – all kept high spirits throughout, no complaining just happy smiling faces and true determination – wow, they are amazing!
 
  Returning to School 
Important Letter to Parents 17th September -  

Dear Parents/Carers,

I want you to know that a student at Tor Bridge High is self-isolating after they tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

We want to assure you that the student was not in school during the infectious period and so it is not necessary to send the bubble home. This is government guidance and public health advice. ..............
