Letter from The Headteacher

17 June 2021

Dear Parents 

As we reach the end of another busy and challenging week, I just wanted to thank you for your ongoing support at this difficult time.

You will be aware we have had several positive cases this week which has resulted in large numbers of children being asked again to self-isolate and work from home. Some of the positive lateral flow tests carried out at school, have been followed up with negative PCR results, which has allowed many children to return to school.

It has been a very busy week! We always strive to communicate effectively with our parents, ideally within 24 hours of an enquiry. As you can imagine, our office staff and systems have been stretched over this week. Can I apologise for any inconvenience caused which was a consequence of the impact of the number of positive tests this week, and thank the overwhelming majority of you who have been so patient and understanding, regarding the difficulties ongoing with the pandemic.

If you do have problems getting through by telephone please leave a message on our answerphone or contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend and I thank you once again for your support.

 

Yours sincerely 

Richard Varey
Headteacher

 

Year 10 Mock Examinations

We are writing to you with information about your child’s Year 10 GCSE Mock examinations, which are scheduled to take place this half term. We know that you will encourage your son/daughter to take these examinations seriously as they are important milestone for two key reasons.

Firstly, the Summer term of Year 10 marks the half way point in most GCSE and vocational courses and is an ideal time to assess pupils carefully to diagnose where their strengths and weaknesses lie, so that staff can work with pupils to support and develop their knowledge and understanding in Year 11. Secondly, it provides pupils with a first taste of preparing for a number of assessments over a relatively short space of time and so helps them to learn lessons about what works well and what is less effective in coping with this challenge.
