November 17th Update – staffing and the Coronavirus

Dear Parent/Carer

As Covid – 19 takes a firm grip on the Erewash area, Wilsthorpe School is committed to remaining open for as many students as possible.  Little has been reported about schools on the national news, however, many schools are finding they have to close for multiple year groups, sometimes for more than a week.  The cause of this is a combination of staff and student absence, particularly staff absence.

On Tuesday 17th November, we were forced to close for Y10 students for the day.  We had 10 teaching staff absent, in addition to Site Team staff and education support staff.  Supply agencies are finding it difficult to provide enough staff for schools, indeed one of the agencies we regularly use actually ran out of teachers.

Several of our teachers are having to self-isolate for 14 days due to one of their children being sent home from primary school after being close to a child with a confirmed case.  Other teachers have a member of the family with Covid and need to self-isolate. 

Thank you for your patience and also for the many messages of support for staff at school, who are effectively on the front line with over 1200 people entering our building every day.  We want to continue to provide the best possible education for your child and we know you appreciate that this is often difficult, particularly when your child is sent home due to low staffing levels and their normal teacher may not be available for setting remote learning work due to commitments with other year groups.

Please visit our remote learning section of the school website where our levelled response, supportive documentation and work for all Key Stages can be found. We believe that there is plenty of work and suggested activities present here for students to actively continue their education in a constructive manner. The direct link to remote learning is below:
