Dear Parent/Guardian,

We hope this email finds you well in the busy run up to the festive season. Please see below some important updates for the coming weeks.

1st year Online Learning Training Thursday 9th December:

To prepare first year students for a potential school closure, they have recieved instruction on learning online during their Assessment week. In order to ensure all students are confident in accessing Schoology and using the conferencing tool, first years wil be released from school at lunch 11:13am on Thursday 9th December 2021. First years will go home and log on to their first class at the delayed start time of 12:15pm. (This is to allow students time to walk home and get their lunch). Timetabled lessons will continue until the end of the school day online. Any problems students encounter should be noted and will be dealt with in school on Friday.

Rainbows:

As part of the pastoral care programme, we are very pleased to be able to provide support for pupils from 1st – Transition Year who may have experienced a bereavement or family change following parental separation, through the introduction of the Rainbows programmes. Please see attached letter and expression of interest form below.

We would remind all parents to check VSWare and to sign and write points into the school journal weekly. We continue to keep our school as safe as possible. All students should bring their own mask and have a spare mask in their bag. As the weather is turning chilly, heating is on and windows are open for ventilation. We would encourage students to layer up under their shirt or blouse, no hoods are permitted. Students may wear their school coat throughout the day.

We wish you all a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Deborah, Mary and Emma.
