We hope you and your families are safe and well. We were absolutely delighted with the news at the beginning of this week, in which Government said that they were working to ensure all schools would be fully open to students in September. Whilst we await more details on what this may look like, we are excited at the thought of seeing all our students again.
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been supporting the return of our Year 10 students for some face to face delivery and it has been a pleasure catching up with them again. During this time, we have also been working hard on developing a Virtual School offer. We have been trialling with small groups and also checking the infrastructure and systems will cope with a larger cohort of students and we are delighted to say that as from 29th June we will be supplementing the remote learning package with live online lessons.
In the first week of our virtual school, we will be delivering a smaller scale offer to each year group, whilst they familiarise themselves with the system and this new approach to learning. The following weeks will see this increase to every subject offering live lessons to every year group until the end of term.
We have included timetables at the end of the letters below, which will show you and your child what lessons are available and when. We hope that you will take a few minutes to discuss with your child/ren how important their engagement in these lessons will be to developing a learning mind-set ready for their return to school.
