27th March 2020
A week has gone by since we closed our doors and we have tried to adjust to new ways of working.
My thanks again to parents who have thanked us for the work we are doing. We continue to make contact with home, arrange support for students without internet access, arrange for childcare for parents that need it and have organised financial support for families eligible for free school meals.
We have issued information on the latest updates on examinations and how students will have their work awarded this summer.
We continue to upload resources for students to continue their learning at home. We fully appreciate the issues that this will raise for students and their parents, without having the direct support from teachers in the classroom. Please do not try to replicate the school experience at home. We are operating in a different world and we recognise that we all need some time to adjust to social distancing, the limitations on movement and the strain that this will put on households.
We are still here - we can not sort out every problem but please make use of the contact from school to talk about how learning can take place, how students make sense of the next steps and how we can support each other through this.
Look after yourselves.
