The Norwood School

School Closure from Wednesday 9th December

Dear Parents and Carers, 

With the safety of staff and pupils remaining a high priority and in light of increased numbers of staff/pupils testing positive/needing to isolate, we have made the decision to close the school. Term will finish on Thursday 17th December. Students will work remotely until the end of term.

An email has been sent home today with important information. Please check your emails regularly for updates.


Students will be expected to follow their normal timetabled lessons, including registering with their form tutor on Google Classroom/Meet during tutor time in the morning.

A significant number of the school have already been notified via email that they are required to self isolate because they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive. This instruction remains the same to those individuals. They would have already been informed of the date that their isolation ends.

We would encourage all families to isolate their children wherever possible, for safety’s sake, and ensure that the tier 2 guidelines are adhered to strictly. The latest guidance is found by following this link.

We will continue to offer support to our most vulnerable students, those with special educational needs and those who are in regular contact with outside support agencies and social services. 

Thank you for your understanding, support and cooperation during these very challenging times, please do take care of each other and stay safe.
