Whilst I look forward to the day where I don't spend quite so much time on zoom, I did enjoy the sharp focus it brought to expressions of pain during the interhouse quiz on Thursday. Answers and questions can be found at the conclusion of this edition. It seems that we have some budding MasterMinds or University Challengers in our ranks.
Congratulations to St. George's for their particular and successful efforts, and to all for joining in with such enthusiasm!

Illness & Medical
We continue to abide with the DfE Regulations.
We ensure that anyone developing those symptoms during the school day is sent home.
These are essential actions to reduce the risk in schools and further drive down transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).
We would like to remind you that if your child is absent from school due to sickness (vomiting, diarrhoea) they must be clear for at least 48 hours prior to returning to school. You must inform the school office directly on 020 8546 5496 if your child will be absent that day.
Should your child develop symptoms or receive a positive result from a PCR test for Covid-19 you must immediately inform the school office - firstname.lastname@example.org
This email is monitored during the school day and at set intervals during the weekend. If our line is busy, we have a backup answer service where an operator can take your message and we, as a school, are alerted accordingly.
We receive daily updates to the regulations every 24 hours and this information is reviewed and any alterations to the regulations immediately adopted. We abide by the PHE and DfE advice.
You must never hesitate to seek clarification direct from myself or Nicola to ensure any concern or anxiety is dealt with in the most sensible, efficient and direct manner.
Book Character Day
Right, I will declare it now. This was the best Book Character Day ever! Enormous fun and brilliant costumes, well, that and an excuse to be Thor all day. The hair! The cape! I may not reappear in suit and tie ever again.
