I hope everyone continues to be safe and well.

I had a great virtual meeting with the student council on Wednesday and it was lovely to hear their voices.  They were overwhelmingly positive about how we have set up the Virtual School and were able to access and submit their work as requested.  They asked for some virtual extra-curricular activities and gave us a few tips on how we can make the experience even better.  We are learning all the time about how to develop our new way of working so we are grateful for any feedback we receive.

It is possible that some children are finding a number of things challenging at the moment due to the combination of a change in routine, social distancing, working remotely and worrying about friends and family.  I wanted to let you know that our pastoral systems are still very much in tact to support both you and your children.  Your child’s tutor is the first port of call for any concerns and they are still available via email for any of their House group.  As I have said before, students are not restricted to just contacting their tutor, they can contact any teacher they feel most comfortable talking to. Mrs Jones, our school counsellor, is still offering considerable support for a number of children and is available to support other children if needed.  Please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Walsh if you think your child would benefit from some confidential counselling.

As I said last week, I understand it is also a challenging time for parents as you face a new set of challenges.  We have published some more guidance in the newsletter this week about how you can support your children with their learning.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions.
