It is likely that some pupils, parents and households may be reluctant or anxious about attending school even if they are looking forward to it. This may include pupils who have shielded in the past but no longer need to, or those living in a household with someone who is clinically vulnerable or extremely vulnerable.
As ever, please contact your class teacher (Junior School) or Adviser/Personal Tutor (Senior School) to discuss any worries that you have about returning to school, and we will support those pupils who may find the transition difficult on a case by case basis.
For pupils or for families who would like further support, there are also a number of resources available that you may find helpful:
