Dear Parents and Carers
Please take a moment to read this week’s updates:
1) Covid 19
Once again, I really am very sorry for the disruption that we have had this week due to Covid. We have had upwards of 20 staff absent on a daily basis, though, and it has simply not been possible to open to every year group. I realise also that there are futher knock ons with staff absence (e.g. Parents Evening). If you need to speak with a particular member of staff about your child, please contact me via the office email.
At the moment, we do have a number of staff returning on Monday so we will be open for all year groups next week.
If the situation changes, I will update you.
2) Events this week
I must say how proud I have been of pupils last week. Their appetite for taking part in a wide ranging extra curricular offer has been excellent and this week with a number of sporting fixtures and extra curricular trips. I have also been really pleased to see our Dance and Music clubs going from strength to strength.
Please do encourage your child to take part in a club of their choice since it will give them a positive outlet, help develop team work and be fun!
3) Next week
There are a couple of key things I’d like to draw your attention to:
- Our free breakfast provision starts next week. 8.00 – 8.30 am in the canteen
- The Year 11 Exam Information Evening will take place on Tuesday at 6pm
- Year 9 pupils must submit their online options preferences using the form
- There is a Year 11 Drama Performance on Thursday for the friends and family of our Drama pupils
- Year 10 Exams continue on Monday and Tuesday
Coming up — we will be releasing details of a number of exciting trips and visits next year in the coming week or two
Finally, I have sent a number of letters today. Please do check the website for more details
Have a great weekend!
