COVID-19: An important message from the Head Teacher 

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am delighted to welcome staff and students back after the half-term holiday. I am very pleased to announce that we are able to have all year groups back in school for face to face learning from Monday, 9th November, once more.

Please take the time to go through the checklist to the right - we are currently in School Tier 1.

As a school we are devoted in ensuring the best possible educational experience for students.  In the first instance, to support the remote learning strategy, we have uploaded work onto Class Charts and the website, going forward we want to expand this provision. 

In phase two, we are training staff and students to access remote learning via Microsoft 365.  This training will take place during next week and parent/carer guidelines will also be available on the website.  This kind of training will support a proportion of `live lessons’ in the event of a partial or full closure and will ensure our curriculum delivery can be as effective as possible.  Staff have been contacting parents and carers this week to check whether students have access to Wi-Fi and devices and we will be supporting student’s learning at home through a triage system, providing devices if necessary in a priority order. 

I appreciate that this is a challenging time for us all, but your support is so gratefully received.  It has been heart-warming to receive so many positive phone calls and emails from parents and carers, and I would like to express my thanks for the supportive feedback.

Despite everything going on in the world around us, we are committed to providing the best possible support for our students, and as a community rest assured that we will continue to ensure the well-being and education of your children is at the forefront of everyone’s efforts.

With best wishes,

Allie Denholm

Head Teacher
