Headteacher’s School Closure Update

On the advice from the Department of Education, the school will be closed from Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice.

Week 2: Headteacher’s School Closure Update. 

I hope this message finds you well. Since my last update, things have been running smoothly. School has been open every day for the children of essential workers. In negotiation with those families, we have decided to close the school over the Easter Holidays although the families know if anything changes they can contact me. 
Easter Holidays 

  • School will be closed
  • Students will not be expected to complete extra work over the Easter Holidays. No extra work will be set.
  • Students should click the “All my Homework” option and take the time to look at the Homework in their “Registration” Folder. There is a Mental Health Book there with a whole range of activities and suggestions that they should look at.
  • The school office email will be checked, but less frequently, so please be patient if you have a query. 

Free School Meals. 
All eligible families have now been registered with the government scheme run by ‘Edenred’. You should receive a code by email and that code can be used to create a voucher for the supermarket of your choice. It may take some time and we were told no vouchers would be available for holiday periods so please be patient.

If you have not heard anything by 21st April, by all means contact Mrs Moors. 
Year 11 update 
Our parents of Year 11 students should now be reassured that no work will be set for them after Easter and that they should not worry about this. We feel confident that we have enough reliable data about attainment to make accurate teacher assessments.

The following link will take you to the latest information to students from OfQUAL. 

Thank you for sending in your Home Heroes nominations. These are inspiring stories and we have sent out 17 awards already. There is a webpage with some photos in a gallery. We hope to build this up over time. Parents and carers can nominate their child by emailing a photo, an amazing piece of work or a few words to 

I will provide another update on Friday 24th April 2020. Happy Easter to everyone.  
Stay safe and stay home, support the NHS, save lives. 
Kind regards,
