As you are aware the government have asked primary schools to re-open from the 1st June and for secondary schools to open for Years 10 and 12 later in the month.  As the current government advice stands, we cannot open for Years 7 and 8 but will remain open for children of key workers and vulnerable children. 

Consequently, the development of an outstanding Virtual School is always central to our planning.  Thank you to everyone who spent time completing the survey, I am truly grateful for the time you spent on this and all the support you have given us during this time.

The survey was overwhelmingly positive.  We received 129 replies and 100% are satisfied with the communication between home and school and 94% are satisfied with the overall virtual school experience.  I am really pleased with this response but know that we need to continually review and improve.  We received a range of comments.  Most parents feel we have the level of work, support and expectation about right and where some parents commented on the work not being enough, an equal number of parents commented on the work being too much.  These range of views are expected (and respected) as we are all working in different settings with different pressures and challenges.

The broad themes that came through for us to develop were:

· To try and find some ways to introduce some screen free time

· To support students with time management/submission of work

· To support the students with some more interaction between teachers/each other

· To continue to provide feedback to the students on their work

All the comments you have made will help us refine the Virtual School for Phase 3 which will start straight after half term.  I will update you next Friday with more details once we have had time to digest your feedback, the students’ feedback and the feedback from teachers.

The well-being of your children is central to everything that we do.  Therefore, it is important that if your child is feeling anxious about any of the work or finding it too much, that you contact us individually so we can support you and them.  Equally, please let us know if you have any issues with devices or internet connectivity as we may be able to help.  I recognise the incredible juggling act you are in as you supervise your children learning at home and complete your own work.

I hope everyone continues to stay safe and well.

With my very best wishes for a lovely weekend.
