The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolQuite unbelievably, the end of this academic year is almost upon us and we only have three full weeks until the end of term.
I hope that everyone remains in good health and that you have all been able to retain a level of positivity despite the length of time we have been unable to meet up with our family and friends. Although, lockdown restrictions have now eased, we still all need to remain alert and adhere to the social distancing guidance to keep us all safe and well.
We have recently conducted a student survey on home learning, which we use to inform how we adjust and improve our home learning experience for the students across all year groups. The survey unanimously revealed how much the students were enjoying the live and recorded lessons and, in particular, the interactions with their teachers. Equally, staff have enjoyed chatting with their students and, whilst not the same as being in the classroom by any means, they have all felt that it has been a good way of keeping lines of communication with them open. Overall, it has been very successful, but we do take on board the students’ feedback and will continue to make improvements. Without doubt, the technology and techniques that staff have developed and learned will contribute to making future independent learning and homework a much more interactive experience for students.
Since 15th June, we have been delighted to be able to welcome some students from years 10 and 12 back to school for some face to face sessions with their teachers, whilst continuing with an onsite provision for vulnerable children and those of critical workers. Although numbers have been extremely limited and very robust safety arrangements in place, again it has been a very positive experience and a real pleasure to be physically back in the classroom and actually seeing the students.
A reminder that when school resumes following the summer holidays, students will return in full school uniform and this link CCHS Uniform ordering will take you straight to the Anglia Sports & School Wear website to enable you to make your purchases. Please ensure that you select the year group relevant to your child’s return in September. You may recall that there are some slight changes as we move forward with year 10’s wearing a blazer, white shirts and ties. When students come back in September all year 10’s will be able to swap their old tie with a free new tie, this design is different to the lower school and was chosen by the students themselves. Those moving into year 11 will be able to wear the polo shirts already purchased. By the following academic year, all CCHS students will be wearing blazers, shirts and ties. Before making any purchases of the generic school wear items such as trousers and shoes, please refer to our website, for advice.
Finally, I am very pleased to announce that in accordance with guidance and expectations from government, for years 7 – 11, free school meals will continue throughout the summer holiday period. It has been very important to us, throughout the whole of these unprecedented times, that we have been able to stay in touch and provide support and advice to some of our most vulnerable children and their families. Parents, if you are entitle to a free school meal for your child, it is important that you advise us of any changes to email addresses or contact details please email   with the information.
Please continue to stay alert and look after yourselves, families and friends.
Chris Taylor, Head of School
