January Delayed Return to School
Following the Government's announcements on Wednesday 30th December 2020 and 5th January 2021, the revised arrangement for the start of the Spring term are as follows:
Students who are classed as 'vulnerable' or whose parents/carers are key workers can attend lessons on-site from Tuesday 5th January 2021 (Years 7 – 13). If you believe your child(ren) should be considered as part of this group, they should attend at the normal time using the same school entrance that they used last term. They do not need to wear their school uniform. They need to have their equipment for each lesson, this includes a reading book. They will be following their normal timetable accessing lessons online in a computer room. For their safety, these students will remain working as a year group ‘bubble’. Masks will continue to be worn, as last term, for students and staff on entering the school buildings.
All other students in Years 7 to 13 will undertake remote learning from Tuesday 5th January
Free school meal provision will be available and can be collected by those families not in school between 12.30pm-1.00pm Tuesday 5 January – Friday 8 January 2021. There will be the normal ‘grab and go’ food service at breaktime and lunchtime for all students attending school.
We are in Week 2 of the school timetable. The external examinations scheduled for next week are continuing as planned.
Please continue to visit our website regularly for further updates and for information about the testing of students.
In the meantime, we wish all of our students, staff, families, governors, and friends of CHA a Happy New Year, Stay Safe.

Following further guidance in the last few days from World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Government from the start of term we expect all students to wear a face covering. This will be required on entry and exit to the school buildings, between lessons and when they are going to the toilet, to break or to lunch. Of course, whilst eating it can be removed. We encourage you to make a face mask. This is more economical and has less impact on the environment. If you can make two or three then they can be washed each day. Instructions on how to make them can be found here. Face coverings are not required in lessons, however students may wear one if they so wish. A small plastic bag is needed for each student to store their face covering. Face coverings are to be worn as a safety measure, not a fashion statement, as part of smart school uniform. As such, we will not allow bandanas, scarfs, hoodies, snoods, balaclavas etc. - only proper face coverings. Students who are exempted on medical grounds from wearing a face mask will need a note from home to explain why they are exempt .
