The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolEvery school in the country would agree that this is not how we wanted to end the term and it was especially difficult for our Year 11 and Year 13 students. The exams issue will get resolved and further information has come out over the weekend indicating that mock data and staff predictions will be used to ensure students are awarded the grade they were on course to achieve. We look forward to welcoming our Year 11 students back if they have applied to Sigma Sixth and will look to reassure these individuals in the coming weeks.

We value each and every student at CCHS and the staff have all worked incredibly hard to ensure that every child is in the best possible place they can be to maximise their time at home given the short notice period. All students who were able to attend in the last couple of days have been spoken to about the opportunity that now lies ahead of them. Whilst this will be a challenging time ahead it is also an opportunity for each student to develop lifelong independence skills and take real ownership of their new starting position when we all return to school.

This is a time of national emergency and we want to remind everyone to keep safe, keep others safe and look out for and support the vulnerable, this is best achievable by following these guidelines:
• Ensure you, and others, use social distancing
• Avoid close contact with others (it will not be forever)
• Following good hygiene and hand washing guidance
• Consider others and listen to the advice given

For students an additional special message:
Keep up with your studies and complete the online work that is set.

It is very important that during this time children should be at home and not in social areas around the community. Everyone must take responsibility for following Government guidelines and ensuring that we support the NHS staff in being able to manage this pandemic. When this global crisis is over, and it will end, we will be able to reflect and learn what to do better.
A lovely quote that we would like to share is: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”

We would like to give huge, heartfelt thanks to all our NHS personnel, care workers, and all those people who are on the frontline keeping the rest of us safe, healthy, fed and sheltered. Thank you also for the emails of support and thanks from parents; these are very welcome at this time.
A final thanks to all the staff (teachers and support staff) who have stepped up and worked above and beyond this week trying to ensure students self-isolating have access to work whilst preparing for the weeks ahead for all students.
Chris Taylor, Head of School
