Worcester News Coronavirus Story
This week Worcester News published a story asking Headteachers in Worcestershire to describe school life during the Coronavirus pandemic and what they’re doing to support their students. The section of the article applying to RGS reads:
Headteacher of RGS Worcester, John Pitt, said: “At all four schools (RGS Worcester, RGS Dodderhill, RGS Springfield and RGS The Grange), we have taken great care with hygiene, cleaning and ensuring that pupils understand the importance of regular washing of hands and there is some lovely singing from younger pupils while they wash. Over time, our four schools have had to postpone the many different and inspiring events that take place in our schools and activities have had to be reduced.”
“Pupils who are self-isolating have often been able to join classes using technology and we have had some instances of younger pupils participating in singing with their class from their own kitchen and answering questions in class from their own homes.”
“It is at times of great disruption and difficulty that we learn the real importance of working together and about our wonderful RGSW community. I would like to thank our pupils and parents for working with us and being so supportive. Our staff, as ever, have gone above and beyond to support and protect the pupils and I am immensely proud of everyone in our schools.”
