Endeavour, Persevere, Achieve

Due to Covid-19 the school bus routes, the 650 and the 656, are no longer in service. Also, please see letter regarding school work below.

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you are all keeping well under such testing circumstances.

I am glad to see so many people following the advice given by our government to stay safe and I hope you all benefit from such measures by staying healthy.

Please go to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for information about the virus and how to protect yourself, and the latest information and advice about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is also available on the government website.

As a parent myself, I have felt slightly overloaded with the amount of homework being set and I am worried that I have not helped complete all of the tasks.

Please rest assured that, whilst homework is being set regularly on ‘Show My Homework’ and the school website the primary objective is to ensure your child has enough work to keep them busy and progress their learning.

If you feel this is sometimes unmanageable I would ask that you use your own discretion in what you feel is a suitable amount of work each day.

Teachers will be setting work regularly but I am also mindful that many are at home looking after their own families during this health crisis.

The voucher scheme will be launched shortly for pupils on Free School Meals.  As soon as the plan for this is finalised I will update you.

The plans for GCSE results will take shape over the coming weeks and I will give you more information on this as soon as a plan is in place.

I am very grateful that so many parents and carers have shown such support during this time and we have worked so well as a community.

Please take care and follow all of the advice being given to stay safe.
