    At a glance:

    •    At TCA our behaviour expectations remain the same as the autumn term with year group bubbles forming the learning community.
    •    Pupils are to arrive on site no earlier than 8:10am and enter school building at 8:25am as directed by duty staff wearing face masks.
    •    We also expect students and staff to wash hands frequently and maintain social distancing whenever possible.

    PE/Dance kit

    Students can wear their full TCA PE kit (as published in the student planner) to school on days when they have a PE/Dance lesson. No alternative items of clothing are allowed as 'PE kit'. This will be for the period up to Easter and will be reviewed.
