Headteacher's Update

30th March 2020 - A challenging month...


I have written to parents/carers and our students regularly over the past few weeks as we continue to change how we work in line with Government advice and in response to your feedback. Please see below my latest update and how you can contact the school during this period of school closure.

Online Learning

Last week was the first week we have delivered lessons to our students from our homes.  Thank you to those of you who have provided us with useful information about this work and how it is has been received.   We have responded in the few areas we needed to by adjusting deadlines and making instructions more clear. Thank you also to those of you who have liaised directly with your subject teachers, who have submitted work on time and who are now working with the feedback you have been provided.  An excellent start (or continuation!).

I am pleased to hear you are all keeping in touch with your teachers and other colleagues through their emails and that you have found the staff contact details, posted on the website and dashboards, very useful.

Online learning will continue next week, week commencing 30th March, and then we will be signing off for the Easter break.  We will return to you on Monday 20th April.
