Update - Year 8 Pupils
Dear Parents and Carers,
Further to previous communication, unfortunately we have to ask parents of children in Year 8 need to keep their children off school for the rest of this week.
This is because of a rise in staff absence due to isolating and non-COVID related illness.
We will update you Friday about plans for next week.
Work will be set on Google classrooms.
Mrs Bonner, Senior Deputy Headteacher

Information in the event of a partial school closure / implementation of rota system
Information in the event of a partial school closure / implementation of rota system Dear Parents and Carers We are experiencing a high level of staff absence at the moment but want to reassure you that this is not because we have staff or students testing positive for Covid 19. Some staff are having to self isolate; other staff have had a member of their household test positive for Covid 19 and are therefore self isolating. In addition, we have staff absent for non-covid related issues. The school has employed a number of supply teachers since the half term break, but the chances of employing even more is slight because demand from local schools is high. read more
COVID-19 Measures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the School community
In order to reassure the School and wider School community, detailed below is our current procedures and arrangements in place to ensure we are adhering to the COVID-19 safety measures: Bubbles Year groups are separated from each other and are grouped in whole year group 'bubbles'. Year group bubbles are taught in separate areas to other year group bubbles and remain in these areas for all non-specialist subject lessons to restrict movement around the School site. The school timetable has been adjusted to avoid mixing bubbles and use of specialist rooms has been organised to allow cleaning between the use by different bubbles. Our staff car park gate shuts each morning to allow it to be used for pedestrian access and different year groups bubbles arrive at staggered times using different entrances. read more

Update from Wisepay
Wisepay Outage - Service restored Important Parent Notice from WisePay Dear Parents and Carers, We value the privacy of your information, which is why we are writing promptly to let you know about a data security incident that affected our payment platform provider, WisePay.

Year 6 to 7 Transition Information
Year 6 to 7 Transition Information Year 6 to 7 Transition Open Events are traditionally one of the highlights of the year and we thoroughly enjoy showing off our amazing students, sharing the sense of welcome and inclusiveness we have as a school community and highlighting the first class facilities the school has to enhance student learning. Unfortunately, following a robust risk assessment, we have taken the sad decision that we cannot safely invite you to visit our school at present due to the difficulties of maintaining social distance and keeping our students and staff, as well as yourselves, safe. We have put together a Virtual Tour so that you can get a sense of the layout of the school, and now that our students have settled into the new school routines, we are asking them to work with faculties, departments and key areas in the school to hopefully give you a little taste of what to expect if your child chooses Cleeve Park School. You can also see how our new Year 7’s have integrated seamlessly into the school following such a long period of time away from formal education. read more
