Letter to Parents 14th October

October 14th 2021


Dear Parents / Guardians


Thank you for all your support of your children and us.

We would like to remind you that students will be learning remotely on Friday, October 22nd and again on Monday, November 1st with work set in Google Classroom for all students. Students should stick to their normal timetable and work on those tasks through the day and submit all work at the end of the day. Teachers will also set Homework Assignments in Google Classroom as per the Homework Timetable. No online live lessons will take place with teachers. No student should attend school on Friday, October 22nd or Monday, November 1st. We are writing separately today to parents of Years 10, 11, 12 & 13 students about booking of appointments for the Parents’ Consultation Days.

Tomorrow, we will also be sending parents of Year 11 students information about our Sixth Form Open Evening on Tuesday, November 2nd. At school we will also be providing information about this to the students.

Today, we are enclosing our Digital Library for the autumn term. It contains a range of exciting and enjoyable books to read for each year Group from Years 7 – 13. We want to encourage all our students to read for pleasure. Please ensure they choose a book and read each day for at least 20 minutes. Research evidence is very clear in respect of students who read daily understanding and achieving so much more highly across their school subjects.

If you did not receive your weekly Guardian Summary in respect of your daughter or son’s learning last week please contact us and we will resend an invitation.

We have not yet been contacted by the NHS with proposals for COVID-19 vaccinations at Brockhill. We will let you know, just as soon as we receive this information. We will continue to test students once weekly as per the schedule below until at least the end of this term. Please test your child at home 3 or 4 days apart from each in school test.
