I hope that you and your families are keeping well. 

The Virtual School

The first two weeks have gone incredibly well, and we are delighted with how the students have settled in to their new routines. The teachers have been working very hard to finalise plans for the Summer Term and we plan to make some changes to the Virtual School after Easter.  These changes will help us collect work from students and have more interaction.

· We are putting in place a new timetable for all students so that every day they have a mix of academic and practical work.

· All students will be required to submit work weekly to their teachers in Maths, English, Science, Geography, History and Spanish.  In other subjects, students will be required to submit work but not every week.  These submissions will come through a variety of means (through interaction with teachers via Microsoft Teams, through completing on line questions or uploading work).  We will continue to communicate the work in the same way through the Shared Area.

· Teachers will be available through the video link of Microsoft Teams at different points in the week.  Students will be able to post questions about the work and the teacher will be there to respond to them. If students are unable to access Microsoft teams then they can continue to use the email system to contact their teachers.

As we will have more daily interaction with all the students through Microsoft teams and the submission of work, weekly phone calls to students will be more targeted and will focus on students who have limited access to the internet or are not engaging in the Virtual School as we would expect them to.

We will update the Virtual School page on our website by Friday 17th April and all students will be sent an email with their new timetable on Monday 20th April.  We suggest that they either print this out or write it out and put it in a place they can see it during the day. The Summer Term Virtual School will begin on Tuesday 21st April.  All families will receive a phone call on Monday 20th April to check that they have the new timetable and are aware of the new system. Thank you for all your continued support during this extraordinary time. With my very best wishes for a safe and peaceful Easter.
