Today would have marked the first GCSE exam for our year 11 students; today more than ever we are thinking of our incredible students and their wellbeing at this difficult time. We continue to live in unprecedented times, and some of us have sadly lost someone dear to us. One thing has become clear; this virus has forced us to take a step back and take a good, long look at what our priorities are. Most of our nation’s key workers during this pandemic are people who would ordinarily not be in the spotlight; however it is these people who have put their lives on the line for us by doing their job; for this we are humbled and grateful.

The academy has now been closed to the vast majority of our students for a number of weeks, and we have entered a new world of online teaching and learning. The manner in which both students and staff have engaged with this has been exceptional, and our telephone welfare checks mean that we have been able to step in and support those students who have needed a little extra support, or just a gentle nudge! We are currently planning our curriculum learning for next half term, and will share this with you as soon as the details have been finalised.

I’m sure the nation was hoping for a gradual return to a recognisable life in the Prime Minister’s speech yesterday, intended as a “cautious roadmap.” Whilst the speech was designed to reassure the nation that there is a clear way forward from this, I understand you may well have even more questions and queries now than you had before. In his speech yesterday the Prime Minister stated, “Our ambition is that secondary pupils facing exams next year will get at least some time with their teachers before the holidays.” The government’s linked document published today with further details states that, “Secondary schools … should also prepare to begin some face to face contact with Year 10 pupils who have key exams next year, in support of their continued remote, home learning.” How this will look in reality for our year 10 students has not yet been made clear; however it is likely that it will require a phased return for these students in order to maintain social distancing and ensure the continued safety of our community.

Please be reassured that we will follow government guidance at all times, and will update you as soon as we have any further details.

My thoughts are with you and your families. Together we are stronger.
