We urge all students to continue their school work, using the materials teachers are providing on a daily basis and the new Home Learning Timetable (details below). This will be monitored regularly. It is vitally important students do not fall behind in their studies and we will be doing all we can to support continued progress.
You will now be aware from recent government announcements that schools are to begin the process of providing students in Year 10 with ‘face to face support’, this to be no sooner than June 1st. The guidance states that face to face support is to supplement the remote (home) learning; students are not expected to return to school on a full time basis. It seems unlikely that Years 7, 8 and 9 will return to school this term.
We have already begun to plan what Year 10 provision may look like for us as a school. We will be carrying out full and thorough risk assessments and will be fully guided by these when considering the capacity for face to face support. We will be looking at the practicalities and logistics of ensuring any next steps towards some students returning to school is done in a safe manner and without putting students or staff at any increased risk.
Once we are confident of this, we will contact you again as soon as possible to inform you of what we will be offering students in Year 10. The provision for students of key workers and those in the vulnerable category will continue.
It is important that all students, including those in Year 10, continue to work as hard as they can on the work set by their teachers to help them when they eventually do return to school and, if they need further help, they should contact their teachers.
