As per our calendar and key dates shared earlier in the academic year, we will be closed to all students on Friday 3rd July, for staff training.
As announced in Dr Badyal’s earlier update, we have been working hard to plan a safe way of enabling face-to-face meetings with all of our Key Stage 3 students before the summer break for those who wish to attend. The eLearning Hub will continue to be populated with work, and students will continue to work from home. However, this meeting will allow your child to catch up with their Personal Tutor who will be able to provide reassurance around the work they are completing, and support with any concerns they might have.
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.
I hope that you and your family are well during these difficult times. Before the pandemic we had planned to announce a small change to the Academy day, but in the first few weeks of the crisis I did not want this important message to get lost in the initial rush as we all learnt to change our lives in the early stages of the lockdown.
Thank you for the messages of support that many of you have been sending in to our academies, this is appreciated by all of our staff.
There has been an enormous amount of media attention on the re-opening of educational settings, and we would like to update you on the next steps for Q3 Academies Trust.
We have made the decision that, in order to help prepare students in Year 9 for their return to the Academy into Key Stage 4, students will commence their option subjects from Monday 1st June 2020. From this point, students will only be required to complete online learning for the subjects they are studying from September 2020, consisting of: English, Mathematics, Science, History/Geography, and their three previously allocated option subjects.
