Induction Day Schedule
Wednesday 2 September 2020
Students should come to the Sixth Form Hall in the Avon building to sign in and be notified of their tutor group by 8:30.
Students will then enrol by tutor group and receive Induction Information to The Burgate Sixth Form. Students will have their photographs taken which will appear on their lanyard and will have time with their tutor for Induction in place of Freshers’ Day. The day will end at 15:00
Thursday 3 September 2020
Students will be with their tutor groups until lesson 3 when formal lessons begin. During this time they will take part in an interactive 75 minute presentation delivered by ELEVATE education called Study Sensei which will equip students with the study skills necessary to ease the transition to that of an A Level student. This is delivered by an external provider having received extremely positive feedback from our prior students.
Friday 4 September 2020
Lessons will commence at 12.30 so students will not be required onsite until just before 12.30, as we will be inducting other year groups in the morning. If a student has no timetabled lessons after 12:30 then it is not necessary for them to attend college on this day.
The week beginning 7 September marks the start of the normal scheduled timetabled week. This week will be a week 2.
All lessons for Year 12 will take place in The Avon Building which will be their year group bubble.
Student should walk around the buildings outside until they reach Avon to protect other year group bubbles and should not walk through the main school to get to The Sixth Form.

Lesson 1 9:00-10:00
Lesson 2 10:00-11:00
Lesson 3 11:00-12:00
Lunch Break 12:00-12:30

Bus Transport and arrival for all Burgate students – Face masks to be worn on ALL bus routes
For the sake of the health of all our students and staff, from September and until further notice, all students travelling on ALL bus services coming to the Burgate School must ensure that they are wearing a suitable face covering while travelling. This includes our school minibus.
When students arrive at the school, they will all be directed to their year group bubbles. Their tutor will meet them and each tutor group will then wash their hands, if they have travelled in on a bus, at this point they can then safely remove their masks and should place it inside a small plastic bag which can be kept in their school bag for the day. Once hands have been washed and masks removed, students will join their first class for the day within their dedicated year group zone. In the afternoon, staff will be supporting students to ensure that masks are once more worn before boarding buses in their year group bubbles for the homeward journey.
We hope you will understand that as a school we find ourselves in an impossible situation as we realise that year groups may possibly be mixing together when travelling on bus services. In order to maintain the integrity of the year group bubbles that we will be working to maintain within school, we must ask that parents please support us by ensuring that every student travelling on any bus service does wear a mask.
You may be aware that there have been social distancing restrictions on public buses. The Government is expected to announce further guidance very soon and it may be that this measure is relaxed. Should any restriction remain in place that may affect any of our bus routes will contact you.
We are currently anticipating that all bus routes will be running as normal from Wednesday 2 September unless the Government, Local Authority or bus service provider indicate otherwise. Again, we will be in touch if there is any further update on this matter.
Please note, in order to accommodate necessary timetable changes, from September the school day will end at 14:40. Please be aware that all drop-off times on the return journeys may therefore be approximately 10-15 minutes ahead of the published timetables and so parents meeting children from school buses should plan to arrive ten minutes earlier.
Please refer to our school website to view our bus timetable.
