On Friday 26th June, both our schools, Rugby Free Secondary School and Rugby Free Primary School welcomed local MP, Mark Pawsey to see the arrangements that have been put in place to welcome students back to school following the publication of government guidance on primary pupils and Year 10 at secondary returning to school following the lockdown. Both leadership teams have worked relentlessly to ensure that as well as continuing with our full-time keyworker schools, as many students as possible could return prior to the summer. Trustees are satisfied that having followed the government guidance, the school leaders have effectively assessed the risks associated with welcoming back more children and they are very happy to endorse this considerable effort.
At RFPS, all reception and Year 1 children have been offered a full-time place and all other years have been welcomed back for a week each. In total 76% of students are now having face to face contact with their teachers, many of them on a full-time basis before the summer break.
At RFSS, 96% of Year 10 students are attending face to face lessons a week at a time through a rolling programme
