Former S6 Pupils
This is a message for our S6 pupils who left us in June 2020.
Former S6 pupils can clear out their lockers between 11.40 to 12.20 on Friday 14th August 2020. Due to Covid restrictions please report to reception and sign in and you must be out of the school by 12.20.
As I’m sure you will be aware, re-opening any school, particularly one the size of Inverness Royal Academy is a complex and delicate task. The arrangements and rules we have in place will change, sometimes at short notice as we navigate the coming days.
This will be as result of continuously learning and refining the safest way to operate in line with current government guidance.
We are in the fortunate position of having been open as a hub for children of key workers and vulnerable young people throughout lockdown. Much has been learnt from that experience, though that was with a maximum of only 50 young people. After this week’s phased return we will be operating with a roll of nearly 1300 students and around 130 staff.
In such circumstances and as government advice is updated, our procedures will reflect what we consider to be in the best interests of pupils & staff (particularly the most vulnerable), while protecting families and the wider community.
We appreciate your understanding and support.
All pupils will receive their timetables through the post over the next couple of weeks. Any queries regarding subject or course changes will be dealt with when we return in August.
