We appreciate that this is an unprecedented time for all of us and we are constantly looking at ways in which we can support students and parents at home.

All students should have work set by each subject to continue their education at home and students should be working through these each day. It is advised that students should follow a daily timetable which covers all of their subjects throughout the week. Students should also factor in time for reading, physical activities and other wellbeing activities. Work set may take the form of ongoing projects, online learning or other tasks as opposed to the normal hour long lessons in school. This has been set on Class Charts and more will be added in the coming weeks. We are also investigating other ways in which we can educate offsite. If you have any Class Charts questions, then please contact main reception for support.

In addition, we are fully aware that students may be missing the pastoral care that the school provides. A member of staff will be contacting you on a regular basis to ‘catch up’ with you so please get in touch if there’s any way in which we can support you or your child during this difficult period. 

Thank you for your support during this time.

Online Safety

Being aware of what your child/ren are doing online is extremely important and communicating regularly about this will help. Social networking can offer a lot of positives, but can also pose some problems for children. It’s important to monitor your child’s profiles online to ensure that they are being safe online, this includes checking their ‘friends’ are people that they actually know and trust.

A useful guide to the different social networking sites can be found here. As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping young people safe, we would like to share a useful website for parents - stop, speak, support and Online Safety Guides for Parents and Carers.

Students who need to can contact childline.
