Year 11 Leavers’ Prom 2021, Cancellation Information
Dear Year 11 Student and Parent/Carer,
We have received guidance and information from the Local Authority over the past few weeks. As you are aware, in our locality and in neighbouring areas there are increasing cases of the Delta variant of SARS-CoV2 (the virus that causes Covid-19). We have also been informed the variant is spreading quickly and has contributed to numbers of people with Covid-19. In many areas the number of positive cases has almost doubled in a week.
As a result, and in partnership with local and national leaders, the Director of Public Health for Salford and Greater Manchester is recommending that all secondary schools and colleges should return to the socially distanced measures we have had in place for the majority of this Academic year.
Unfortunately this has resulted in us cancelling the Leavers’ Prom that was due to take place on 16 July 2021. Although I understand you will be disappointed, I hope you can see the importance of these safety measures.
If you have paid for the Leavers’ Prom, we will be in touch over the next few weeks and will return the payment to you in the format you paid in.
I know that this will be incredibly disappointing for you all, as it is for our staff and Year Team who were really looking forward to seeing you all again. If the situation improves by the Autumn term, we are planning to continue with Presentation Evening in November 2021. We will communicate with you further regarding this event in October.
The Year Team will be in school on GCSE Results Day on Thursday 12 August. Please ensure you read the contents of the pack you took home with you on your last day in school so you know the plans for the day. Details are also on our website HERE
Please keep yourself safe and have a good Summer break.
Mrs Fagan, Mr Cavanah and Mr Bowcott
