Alleyn's Chamber Choir has temporarily rebranded as 'Corona Choir' and has recorded its first piece under lockdown.
During Lent term 2021 Alleyn's initially was operating remotely within the parameters of the Government lockdown.
From 8 March, the site is open to all pupils again to resume education on the campus.
We are still restricting visitors, while the lockdown in the country more widely continues to be observed. Presentations for various events, including parent consultation evenings, will be hosted using online services such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
A full suite of guidance and films have been produced for pupils and parents, providing them with information on our return to the site, and with specific information about the new asymptomatic testing regime that has been required by government.
Detailed risk assessments have been undertaken for both the Senior and Junior School, and published separately as the government guidance on the reopening of schools differs markedly between primary and secondary settings. The risk assessments are regularly reviewed and updated, and published here.
Safeguarding continues to be at the heart of everything that we do, and we encourage our community to contact Mr Severino (Head of Alleyn's Junior School), Mr Skinnard (Senior Deputy Head) or the relevant Section Head or Housemaster with any specific pastoral concerns.
We continue to closely follow the guidelines provided by the government and Public Health England, and our Senior Management Team continues to review the broader and School-specific picture on an ongoing basis. We are incredibly grateful to all our teachers and operational staff who have been incredibly active as we have worked to have the School running on a more normal footing, albeit remotely thus far this term; and especially to those who run the new testing procedure and the cleaning side of school operations. These colleagues have been managing brilliantly and working exceptionally hard ever since we had the challenge of intensifying our cleaning regime.
We are sending regular and targeted information to parents via our usual School/home communication channels. Parents/guardians should therefore refer to their Alleyn's Post for specific information related to their child.
This page was last updated on 5 March 2021, and we shall update it when we have new information to share and/or we have further guidance from the relevant authorities.
