Headteacher's weekly update

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you and your loved ones remain safe and well at this time and that our Muslim families enjoyed their celebration of Eid.

The government have now decided to delay the wider opening of secondary schools until the 15 June; they intend to allow some contact with teachers for Years 10 and 12 who are preparing for public exams next year. I will be writing separately to parents in these year groups next week, explaining arrangements we have in place to maintain social distancing on site. Organised sessions will be initially for small groups outside of peak travel times; the majority of their learning will still be from home on Google Classrooms or through other resources for those with limited access to computers.

Parents will not be forced to send their child into school and the final decision will rest with you, taking into account your family's personal circumstances.

Please continue to contact your Head of Year about any difficulties you may be having with home learning and we will do our best to support you. We are happy to arrange a session for your child to attend if they need access to resources at school or extra support with completing work.

Take care and keep safe

All Best Wishes,

Helen Gill
