The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolRemote learning continues for all of our students. We have put together a comprehensive timetable for every year group of students which should mean for your child, whether KS3 or KS4, they will be receiving a blend of learning each day for a minimum of 5 hours.
We have received many emails and phone calls over the past week, especially in regard to Year 7 logins for remote learning, and I hope by now all of your questions have been answered and all of our students are able to access their online programme of lessons. Some will be live and some will be recorded, but teachers will always be available to help and support students and will answer any questions they may have in regard to their work.
We have expanded our online offer to include daily sessions based on either a physical or mindfulness activity and additionally all year group assemblies will be followed by a PSHE activity for students to complete, which should take around 35-40 minutes.
Our PROUD reward programme will continue and students will be able to receive weekly recognition for their remote learning work and those with the most PROUD rewards achieved each week across the year groups will receive a £5 Amazon voucher. Winners will be notified and their success celebrated in our Weekly News bulletin.
Every morning, we are asking students to register in their year group Google classroom and we will be keeping a live lesson attendance log. Staff are completely committed to remaining in contact and accessible to their students. Any questions on any lessons, anything not understood, students should not hesitate to contact their teacher via email. Teachers will get back to them as soon as possible. Likewise if any parent needs any help or support to facilitate their child’s home learning, please contact the member of staff via -
For all students, attitude to learning is key to academic success. Excellent attitude to learning at all times is important, but excellent attitude to remote learning is vital to remaining engaged with education. Home and school working in partnership is now more important than ever and with parents and school in collaboration, we are confident that we can keep your children motivated and working hard to achieve the best outcomes that they can.
Year 11 students and sixth form students expecting to take summer examinations, will no doubt be aware that these exams have now been officially cancelled. Grades will be awarded based on a form of centre assessed grades produced using teacher assessments. Some students would have received results from recent mocks, but other subjects have yet to complete internal assessments. If any students were disappointed with their recent grades, it is really important to realise that this is not the final grade and can be improved upon. Students will continue to be assessed via remote learning engagement, short in class/online assessments and through more formal assessments. The current plan for when we do return to school, is that Year 11 students will sit a formal assessment in all of their subjects. All of the evidence will then be collated and used to inform the final summer examination grade. Examination students need to continue to work hard, remain focussed and motivated and make the most of all of the help and support available to them. Mrs Loosley has put together a Year 11 assembly, which aims to answer some of the questions that you may have and also gives some important advice, please take 5 minutes to watch this assembly.
To all of our school community, I have been so proud of everyone. To our staff, who with such short notice of closure really stepped up to the mark, organising a comprehensive remote learning experience and providing daily in-school learning for the children of critical workers and vulnerable children, a massive thank you. To our students who have shown so much resilience this year; a year like no other we have known, but have managed to adapt and remain engaged. Finally, to all parents and carers, your continued support of both school and your children has been remarkable, your messages of gratitude are so gratefully received and I sincerely thank you as well.
Chris Taylor, Head of School

    Late to school ?

    If your son/daughter is late to school please contact us by phone prior to 8.45am or send them in with a letter.
    They then go to the attendance hub to collect a pass to justify their lateness. This avoids receiving a sanction for lateness. Otherwise your son/daughter should go straight to form or their lessons; they will receive a C2 if they arrive after the bell or a C3 in they arrive after 8.50am.
