Summer Safeguarding

We have created a ‘Wellbeing’ page under the ‘Remote Learning’ section of our school’s website that signpost families on where to access the best advice and support if needed. It also has access to some excellent resources to support mental health. 

I also would like to make you aware of ‘Kooth’ a new digital package of mental health support for Children and Young people aged between 11 and 25. It is a free, confidential and anonymous online support and counselling service which includes self-help resources, magazine articles, links to crisis support, safeguarded and monitored live drop-in sessions and also 1-1 scheduled counselling with qualified professionals. More details can be found here.

Y10 & Y11 Information for September

This current period has been challenging in many ways but we are proud of how our school community has responded to these unprecedented times. Undoubtedly there will be anxieties about the future, even things like re-establishing routines will be a challenge. 

We are planning that all students will follow their full timetable and staff have been working extremely hard to plan a revised curriculum across all subjects to address any gaps in students’ knowledge. We are looking forward to working with your child  to ensure that they have a full understanding of the content covered during the remote learning period. Your child should aim to have all work set via Google Classroom completed by the time they return in September.  Could you please support your child by taking the time to review the work set for them and ensure they are up to date by the time they return. If your child has any questions about any of their work, please encourage them to contact their teacher via Google classroom before the end of term.

Sixth Form September Return Information

Please see below for year group specific information.

Y13 Results Day

Taking everything into consideration, including the current government guidelines, we have taken the difficult decision to distribute results remotely. 

Students will receive their final grades direct to their 3rivers email account at 8am on Thursday 13 August. JCQ stipulates results must be sent on the secure school server and can only be sent directly to individual students.

GCSE Result’s Day 2020

Due to the current government Covid-19 guidelines, we have decided that the safest way students can receive their results is for them to be sent electronically and by post. 

We will email individual GCSE results to the 3rivers email addresses of all Year 11 students at 8am on 20 August. In addition, we will send a hard copy of these results by first class post on that morning to their home address. This is not the way we would have liked to give out student’s GCSE results, however, after reviewing all the guidance available to us, we believe this is the most appropriate method during this time.

Update from the CEO, Mr S Taylor

It is the government’s intention for all pupils to be back to school in September and The Three Rivers Learning Trust fully supports this ambition because the prolonged absence from school is concerning academically, socially and for some children, from a welfare and safety perspective. Please note that attendance for pupils is mandatory from September.
