Letter to parents 1st April




 April 1st 2021

Dear Parents / Guardians


Thank you for all your support of us this term. Please ensure your daughter or son submits today’s classwork assignments set in the Google Classroom at the end of the school day.

Please also ensure they complete Easter holiday revision assignments in the Google Classroom (Years 11 and 13 students) or Homework due for submission after the holiday.

High quality subject based resources are also available on

BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy

On Friday, you will receive your weekly Guardian Summary as usual in respect of your daughter or son’s learning this week. If you do not, please contact us via email to the Office account.

Please remind your daughter or son of the importance of reading for just 20 minutes per day. This has been demonstrated to be hugely beneficial in raising student attainment in the range of subjects they study.

The Benefits of Reading for 20 minutes a Day

Please do ensure they have chosen a book and are reading daily from our

Digital Library

Our Learning Pathways event for Tuesday, April 27th will run remotely and we will contact you with further details during the first week of next term. Please see also our      

Summary of Changes to the Calendar and watch out for further changes on our website.

As we approach the holiday, we want to remind all our students to remain safe by following the National Guidance Corona Virus Restrictions: What you can and cannot do

as well as to remember social distancing, hand washing and face coverings, so as to play their part in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

During the school holiday, please carry on testing –twice weekly rather than once a week. Please ensure your child completes a test the day before they return to school after the holiday. Please also remember to keep ordering Lateral Flow Test Kits for you and all your family.

Order Rapid Lateral Flow Tests           

If your daughter or son tests positive between this evening and the following Monday, April 5th please let us know by email to the school office account.

It is our intention to continue testing students once weekly as per our regular schedule in the summer term.
