Our hearts go out to all staff, students and parents at Harrington School following the devastating fire which occurred today (Thursday 28th May). As a result of the fire, for Health and Safety reasons, the electricity supply to the whole campus has been turned off by Western Power. As a result, Wilsthorpe School will unfortunately be closed tomorrow (Friday 29th May).

Coronavirus Update - Guidance for parents – 22 May

​Thank you to parents of Y10 and Y12 students for replying to school about the possibility of receiving some face to face contact in school for your children. 

The information you have provided will allow us, over the next few weeks, to put strategies into place in order to best prepare the school for running a number of sessions whilst reducing the risks of contamination to the best of our ability. 

Please be patient; we will contact you if and when we feel the school is ready to welcome this increased numbers of students.  Getting the school ready involves more than just classroom and corridor work, will need to install additional facilities (external handwashing facilities etc…) in order to address the risks we are threatened with by this incredibly infectious and deadly virus.

Derbyshire Local Authority has today become the latest amongst several authorities nationally to recognise that Derbyshire schools cannot re-open on 1st June.  The risks are too great and the measures too complex to sufficiently adapt schools in such a short window.  We are dealing with a picture which changes on a daily basis to the point where it is even possible the government will advise schools that no students should return before September.

We are not setting a date for the start of this proposed, limited face-to-face contact with students in Y10 and Y12 because we are not sure when we will be ready.  What I can share with you is that these sessions, should they happen, are likely to be mornings only and the work covered will be the same as that set for the large number of Y10 and Y12 students who have expressed wishes not to attend school due to safety fears.

I can also share with parents that we will not be providing video conferencing style lessons to Y10 students; we will make a decision about Y12 at a later date.

​​Finally, may I again thank all parents and all students at Wilsthorpe for what have been incredible efforts​ throughout these difficult times.

​Keep safe and look after your families. 

​Jonathan Crofts (Headteacher)
