Delivering learning for life within an aspirational culture

Year 11

Please make sure you have fully read the contents of the Remote Learning page first.

Following the Government’s announcement about the changes to the start of school in January 2021, here are our plans to support your children in the first few weeks.

Week Commencing 4 January 2021:

  • • 4 January 2021: A strategic planning day for schools to support the mass testing programme/remote learning.
  • • 5-8 January: Remote Learning delivered through 100% of live lessons as per students timetable. Invites will be sent using the Microsoft Teams calendar.

From Week Commencing 11 January 2021 and beyond:

  • • Students should attend school and will receive normal face to face teaching.
  • • Remote Learning will be available for students who need to self isolate as per our previous arrangements.

If your child cannot access the work on SharePoint/Microsoft Teams, then you will be able to collect work each week on Wednesday between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm. YOU MUST CONTACT US ON THE PREVIOUS MONDAY TO LET US KNOW THAT YOU REQUIRE THIS FACILITY TO ALLOW TEACHERS TIME TO PHOTOCOPY RESOURCES.

If you are a critical worker and your son/daughter is unable to stay at home unsupervised, then please complete the form on the website by 8.00 am on Monday 4 January 2021 if they are to attend between 5-8 January 2021. These students will then be supervised in school and will have access to a range of resources on SharePoint/Microsoft Teams or other digital platforms.

Please bear in mind that whilst these are our intentions at this time, the situation may change based on Government and Scientific advice and we will contact you again with updates should this occur.
