Letter to parents 20th April

April 20th 2020

 Dear Parents


We hope today as been a successful and productive day for all the students.

This week we will be increasing our curriculum offer by reactivating a number of our normal Tutor time activities. Tomorrow, we start this process by Tutors’ sending out a Google Classcode invitation to student emails to join their Tutor Group.  Please click this link for a guide on Using Google Student Classroom for students, which we have sent you previously, so you can oversee this process if you wish.  Then, on Wednesday morning students will be able to access this week’s Literacy activities.

Yesterday, the Secretary of State announced possible support for some students to better access technology. We do not have advance notice of such announcements and are not yet in receipt of the detail of Government plans. As soon as we are, we will plan to derive maximum benefit from the scheme to support our students. We will contact you further thereafter. In the meantime here is a link to information published thus far:

In case you are not aware the BBC has updated its educational resources over the holiday to take full account of the current circumstances and their resources are extremely useful across the range of subjects. The link appears below.

Please stay safe.

Yours sincerely

Sonette Schwartz   &   Charles Joseph
