Staff Structure & The School Day

COVID Update

Following on from rising Covid rates the Government has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from Covid this winter.

Therefore, with immediate effect, we are requesting that all students (except those with a medical exemption) wear a face mask when travelling on school transport, in communal spaces and when queueing indoors for food.
Please remember to continue to perform a lateral flow test twice weekly.  
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our local communities healthy and safe.

Staffing structure is divided into 2 branches: Teaching Staff and Support Staff. The following illustrates the structural relationships in both branches
