Remote Learning

From Monday 18 January, live delivery will be the key element of our remote learning offer to students across all year groups. All students should follow their normal school timetable and log into their lessons through the Meet link on their subject Google Classrooms at the times listed below.

Period 1 – 9.20 -10.20

Period 2 – 10.25 – 11.25

Period 3 – 11.45-12.45

Period 4 – 1.20-2.20

Period 5 – 2.25-3.25

Lessons will be a mix of both live delivery and students working through resources, many of which will be pre-recorded, which will be provided by their teachers on Google Classroom. It is important to note that we are not asking teachers to deliver five lessons a day with 60 minutes of live input. We fully understand that a varied provision is needed to ensure students are not focussing on a screen for the whole of the school day. More details or our remote learning expectations are linked here.

It is really important that all students access all of their lessons and continue to work as hard as they can on all of the tasks they are set. Work should be submitted on request and students will receive feedback from their subject teachers. We will record student attendance to every lesson and we will contact home if students are not routinely accessing their lessons.

From Monday 11 January, we expect all students to attend registration at 9am through Google Meet on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Mondays, students will have a “virtual” assembly. Form Tutors will run online registration on a Wednesday and Friday for their tutor groups. This will comprise a register, a topic / discussion and an opportunity for students to remain on the line for an individual discussion with their Form Tutor if the student wishes.

Staggered start to the Spring Term

As you may have seen in the news yesterday, the government has announced further changes to students returning to school in the first two week of the spring term in response to a rapid rise in cases and also to facilitate the planning and set up of mass testing in schools.

From Tuesday 5 January to Friday 8 January, school will be closed to all but vulnerable and key worker students. Students in Year 11 and Year 13 will now return on Monday 11 January. All other year groups will return to school on Monday 18 January 2021.

Key Worker and Vulnerable Provision : As with the previous lockdown, provision will be made for these students in school. If after reading this guidance you feel that you will require this provision and if you have not already done so, please complete this form by Sunday 3 January 2021 to allow us to plan our provision. We will contact you on Monday 4 January to confirm arrangements for this provision.

COVID Update 15 December 2020

Covid Update

I am pleased to report that we have had only one positive case since the last update on 6 November with 21 students self isolating as a result of close contact. We currently have one live case across our school. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in keeping the school open this term.  By reinforcing messages, ensuring your child has and wears a mask and follows the basics of face, space, hands we have been able to keep students safe in school and offer a full curriculum.
