    I would like to echo the words of Chris Challis, CEO of TRMAT, in thanking all of you for the support you have given to our students this half term. Remote learning is not easy for anyone and we all are looking forward to being back in school. I am sure that very many of us will be watching the Prime Minister’s announcement on 22 February when the roadmap forward is to be explained, to hear when students can be back in school safely.

    It is great to hear that the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine is moving ahead so successfully. This means that the possibility that children may be able to return to school from 8 March is looking more likely. We still have not heard how this will happen, whether it will be certain year groups first, or on a rota

    We were all pleased to hear from the government this week that there is the prospect of returning to school, even if that is some way off and depends on statistics of vaccination, as well as the infection rates.

    ast week we heard the news that exams had been cancelled, but the latest from the government suggests there may be some shorter assessments after all! All students in exams classes need to keep on working as this will help them with any future studies and in any assessment or interview that they may have.

    The latest lockdown may not have been a complete surprise but as a school we were not expecting a closure as happened in March last year. All of the information that we had received until last night suggested that schools would remain open and we had no notice of last night’s announcement.

    Unfortunately the recent news about the Covid-19 virus infections has had an impact on the start of next term. I wanted to email to let you know how this will affect Falmouth School.

    I was really happy to return to school this week, it is great to talk to students and staff.
