Par­ent home: Lat­est news

Read­ing Newslet­ter No.1


T3 Letter

6th Jan­u­ary 2021

Dear Par­ents and Carers

I had not antic­i­pated writ­ing to you with another change and update quite so soon!

You will have seen the news and heard the lat­est announce­ment about school clo­sure and the move to remote learn­ing for all stu­dents for term 3. We are so frus­trated for our young peo­ple that, yet again, they have a huge dis­rup­tion to their learn­ing and edu­ca­tion but it seems that the lat­est news is unavoid­able. Fol­low­ing this announce­ment about National lock­down and school clo­sures, I wanted to clar­ify as much as pos­si­ble. As always, we will pull together to do our utmost to keep stu­dents safe and on track.

Remote Learn­ing:

All year groups will now be remote learn­ing from home – the school will pro­vide remote lessons and learn­ing accessed via Show My Home­work in the usual way. Do get in touch if you are expe­ri­enc­ing any prob­lems with this, includ­ing IT access, or you need any sup­port. Form Tutors will be run­ning remote tutor times at the start of the day, to check in with their groups and check they are set up for the day.

Mass Testing

We are pleased to let you know that be will be offer­ing rapid COVID test­ing when stu­dents return to school. This will mean only those who test pos­i­tive will need to self-​isolate.

The new test is called a lat­eral flow test, and gives a result in 30 min­utes. Stu­dents will be asked to test them­selves and will be sup­ported by a team of staff and par­ent vol­un­teers. The video below offers more infor­ma­tion on this type of testing.

The key objec­tives to test­ing all staff/​students are to reduce the trans­mis­sion of Covid within the school and reduce the num­ber of peo­ple need­ing to self-​isolate.

More infor­ma­tion on the mass Covid test­ing can be found here, within the ded­i­cated Covid Test­ing folder.
