GTS Transition 2021

It is with an extremely heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel all transition activities at GTS this term. This includes Transition Week (22nd June-25th June), extended transition (Year 6) and the Year 5 day (Friday 2nd July). As I am sure you can appreciate this is not a decision that has been made lightly, however after seeking external advice we have been directed not to proceed. As yet we have no further update on our Summer School activities (16th August- 19th August)

We are absolutely devastated not to be able to offer the transition we were all hoping for, but as with many things in the current climate we are having to remain flexible, with the safety of all our families as our priority.

We will be offering a ‘Virtual Transition’ package (similar to last year) all of which will be on our website. I urge you to regularly visit our website and follow us on social media to ensure you are kept up to date.

We thank you for your understanding and patience in these challenging times.

URGENT NOTICE - Year 10

Apologies for the late notice, but unfortunately we have had to reach the decision for ALL YEAR 10 pupils to stay at home tomorrow (17/6/21). Having previously reached the decision today (in discussion with DCC, PHE and SWHPT) that it was appropriate for Year 10 to remain at school, we have tonight received notification of a further case within the year group. Therefore, the decision has been to isolate the entire Year group.

We will write again tomorrow with regard to return dates but in the meantime please keep your child at home. Household members do not need to self-isolate unless someone returns a positive LFD test, PCR test or becomes symptomatic. Please continue to test regularly. Please notify us of any positive result immediately via covidcontact@gts.devon.sch.uk.

Pupils should remain at home as they are now considered to be proximity contacts and therefore at risk of transmitting COVID-19.

Work will be available via the school website in the first instance.

COVID-19 Precautions

You may be aware that there have been a number of cases of COVID-19 across a range of north Devon schools. We are currently in the process of determining whether there is any need to ask pupils to be collected from GTS and isolate.

At this point, there is no indication that any pupil who had direct contact with an individual who has COVID-19, has come into school.

However, you will appreciate that this is a complex situation and we are currently trying to establish all facts and possible contacts. We have therefore taken the precautionary measure of asking pupils to wear masks in lesson, and around school, until we are as confident as we can be regarding possible cases.

Best wishes,

Andy Bloodworth
