This week we were delighted to begin welcoming back our Year 10 and 12 students after almost three months of distance learning. Thank you for your support in ensuring their safe return, it has been a pleasure to hear so many positive comments from you and your children about getting back to some form of normality. Although we have to keep the time your child spends in the Academy to a minimum, it will support them to get back into a routine as they prepare for the start of the new academic year.
You may have also heard that the government has agreed that education settings can undertake face-to-face meetings with students in other Year Groups before the end of term. This is a positive step forward allowing us to see students before they return in September. As you are aware, we must continue to ensure that all protective measures are followed including limiting the number of students allowed on site at any one time. Our Heads of School will contact you to explain when your child will be able to attend a face-to-face meeting with their Personal Tutor. They are only expected to attend one meeting before the end of term.
Year 10 and 12 attendance across our three academies has been excellent, and I hope that you will continue to encourage and support your children as they transition back to life at the Academy.
Year 7, 8, and 9 parents and carers will receive an update next week detailing plans for the students’ face-to-face meetings with Personal Tutors.
Thank you for all you are doing to support your children with their distance learning and for your ongoing encouragement.
