Year 9 will be going on fieldwork on 13th October as part of their ‘Welcome to the Machine’ expedition. We’ll be leaving school at 9:30AM and returning at 3:00PM, so this will not affect their drop off or pick up times, however, due to the pandemic, we ask that all students have guardian consent for them to attend.
We’ll be visiting Hatfield Moors, to collect species data and conduct scientific tests on the peatland during the day. We will be maintaining the bubbles, and wearing masks on the coaches to minimise risk of transmission, and we will be outside all day.
As part of the precautions, we ask that you fill in the following google forms, granting permission for students to attend the fieldwork on 13th October:
This outlines that if your child falls ill with covid symptoms on that day, they would need collecting from Hatfield Moors (about 40 minute drive from the school).
They will need packed lunches (school will provide FSM pack-ups), a face mask, warm layers, decent shoes and a waterproof on the day.
If you have any questions about the plans for the day or concerns, don’t hesitate to email me ([email protected])
