WEEKLY EMAIL Friday 29 May 2020

Message from the Head of School

Dear parents/carers

I hope that you have been able to enjoy the sunshine with your family this week.
Thank you to all Year 10 parents who responded to our proposal for wider opening sent last week. We will be able to respond to any queries/concerns raised and explain how we will address them in an email to you later in the week. Please also be aware that we will be following the government advice and not extending our opening until at least 15th June, not 8th June as previously stated.
Thank you for all the support and feedback that we’ve received from parents over this period of time. We are continuing to review our provision and would like your feedback to help us to improve. Therefore we will be sending a questionnaire to all of our parents of children in Years 7-10  to review what you find is working well, how much work your child is completing and how we can enhance our curriculum provision. We are also looking to enhance and inform the work of the pastoral and inclusion teams by getting an overview of the extent to which families have been affected.

To our students

On behalf of all of the teachers and support staff, we wanted to remind you how proud we are of the work that you are doing and we miss you all. We have made a little video for you to remind you that “We’ll meet again” and although it may be a while still, we really look forward to seeing you all again when it is safe.

Please keep safe and continue to follow social distancing guidance to protect yourselves and your families. Enjoy the sunshine!

Best wishes
Miss G Greenhalgh
