We are delighted that NHSG is now open fully to all of our pupils every day.
I realise that the reopening of school brings mixed emotions; we are extremely pleased that there is a return to some level of normality and relief that the girls will be able to come into school for face to face lessons, and spend time with their peers. I also recognise that some parents and girls may feel anxious about their return.
Our meticulous approach to following Government and GDST Health and Safety guidelines will give parents at NHSG confidence that we are doing all that we can to make our school as safe as possible.
I also want to let you know that our pastoral team will be supporting the girls through this time, and providing help wherever needed.
At NHSG, we will continue to deliver an outstanding education irrespective of the circumstances. I very much hope that all pupils will be able to be in school for the whole term and beyond, but we are also prepared for every eventuality including any local or national lockdowns that we may be faced with. If either of these scenarios were to happen we know that we can move seamlessly into our Guided Home Learning programme which ensured NHSG girls maintained their learning and progress throughout the school-closure period from March to July.
We embrace and acknowledge the challenges the current situation brings and are all very much looking forward to the 2020/21 academic year.
With my best wishes
