Important Parent Communication Regarding Staff Absence

Unfortunately, due to ongoing significant staff absences, we have agreed in the best interest of the Health and Safety and wellbeing of all our students that Year 9 will need to stay at home tomorrow, 12th July 2022 to access Remote Learning.

We have not taken this decision lightly; year 9 and year 7 have had the fewest days working from home and therefore year 9 have been selected on this occasion. Parents of year 7 children should be aware that if the situation with staff absence continues, they will be the next year group to be asked to stay at home for Remote Learning. If this is the case we will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible.

Please note the following groups will be required to remain in school; please complete the form on our school website to book a place for your child.

  • Vulnerable students
  • Students with an EHCP
  • Students with Social Worker involvement

Students working from home will receive a mixture of live and independent lessons and should be prepared to log into Google Classrooms for tutor time at 9am each morning.

Students accessing Remote Learning will be expected to follow their normal school timetable each day and complete the work set on Google Classrooms.  We strongly advise that parents/carers encourage students to follow this routine.

Please let the school know, as soon as possible, if your child requires help to access the necessary technology to be able to access their Remote Learning.

I am very sorry for the ongoing disruption this may cause and hope that the school can return to normal following the summer break.  Thank you for your support in this matter.
