Provision for Our Critical Worker Students
In addition to the remote learning taking place and live lessons, staff have been supporting some students in school. We have had between 30-40 students in school each day who are children of critical workers and/or meet the DfE criteria. Students have continued their learning online, but with support from staff in Learning Support or teachers. LSPs have been superb in providing expert support and care with these students. While teachers have been on hand to give further guidance.
The full curriculum is on offer, with the added benefit of being on site so students are able to access some resources in PE and Music. Mr Conway has delivered some live PE lessons in school enabling these students to take part.
Students have been studying while adhering to the guidance on staying safe in schools, for instance when using the IT facilities in the Sixth Form area. They have commented that they ‘enjoy the structure of the day’ and that ‘they are learning well with the help from teachers’ and their LSPs. Being in school has helped them maintain a sense of routine during these uncertain times.
We thank all our staff for all their efforts in supporting the students and we are pleased to be able to offer this support. With the restrictions of lockdown and safety of all in mind, we have to monitor numbers carefully; however, if your circumstances have changed and you feel your child qualifies for a place you should contact the school.
