As a parent we know that it is a difficult time with uncertainty around what your sons and daughters should be doing and how you can help them.
While your child is at home during the school closure staff will be delivering a full academic timetable following the current curriculum. Pupils are expected to engage with learning during a normal school day. Lessons are slightly shorter than normal to allow students to have some time away from screens in between lessons.
We take student wellbeing very seriously during this challenging time so please be in touch with your child’s Year Leader if you feel your child is struggling. Year Leaders may also be in touch during this time to check in with you. Please also use the ideas in the wellbeing tab for ideas to help during this time.
It would be great if parents could encourage their sons and daughters to engage with the activities that have been set. You can also help by doing some of the activities with them and encouraging them to stay focussed.
