Year 8 London Trip A message from Mrs Finch and Ms Reeves
In light of the current situation, we are not accepting any further payments for the Year 8 London trip. We are aware that the full payment needed to be paid by the end of this month, but we are not expecting any additional payments by yourselves, so please do not worry to get these in. Understandably, we are waiting to see how this situation progresses before we make a final decision as to whether or not this trip progresses. We will keep you informed of any developments as they happen.
Staff have added work to the website for students. Please click on TEACHING AND LEARNING on the top bar and select Work for Students from Home form the drop down menu. We have also added a new section called Wellbeing During School Closure where you will find Pastoral advice and support and some resources and things to do which are not work related.
Please note that some teachers are also sending work out by email- all students should check their school emails (via Outlook 365) to find the work they have been set.
Information on how to access Outlook 365 ( Student Guide for Outlook 365) in order for students to access their school email account is attached in the NEWS AND EVENTS/ Letters Home section. Outlook 365 provides free Word and other resources for students.
Mrs Rees has had an idea for a house competition for students whilst they are working from home. A large number of students have smart phones or access to an iPad or a tablet. There are lots of free stop motion animation apps and students could have a go at making a stop-motion animation clip using only household objects (maximum 30 second clip). See the poster in Letters Home or at the bottom of the Work for Students at Home page
If you are a key worker or the parent /carer of a vulnerable child please fill in the form in NEWS AND EVENTS/ Letters Home section. Hard copies are available from school and we will email copies on request. As you will be aware, following the government’s request that schools close for all children other than those of key workers or considered vulnerable, more information has now been made available.
Also Information from the Department for Education and Exam Boards on the options for Year 11 students has been put in the TEACHING AND LEARNING / Examinations section. Please read carefully.
For any Year 11 students that have funds remaining on their school meal account, please email Mrs Chalk in the finance office so that a refund can be processed firstname.lastname@example.org We will do this as soon as we practically can.
