The KING DAVID HIGH SCHOOL, Yavneh Yeshiva High School, Yavneh Girls
Please see below our provisional plan of action for reopening school in September. We are calling it ‘provisional’ because there could be changes in the government’s guidelines.
As you are aware, government guidance [and our ideal] is for all children to return to school in September and to operate as normally as possible. However, pupil and staff safety is the school’s responsibility and if the school feels that the risk is too great [eg, if there is a spike in COVID cases in the area], we will reduce class sizes and operate a ‘rota’ system, with some pupils attending at school and some following lessons remotely from home. As you will see from the plan, the school has equipped classrooms with webcams and microphones so that, should a rota system be necessary, live lessons will be transmitted as they take place.
I hope you all have an enjoyable summer break.
Stay safe and stay well.
Usual school priorities
Pupil well-being & happiness, religious ethos and high standards of behaviour
Rigorous academic standards – maximising every pupil’s potential / continue to take advantage of the lessons learnt during the closure >> maximising ‘self-learning’ and ability to ‘apply knowledge’
Catching up with anyone who has fallen behind [priority to years 11 and 13 and then to 10 etc]. We have allocated additional teacher time in timetables for this priority
