I hope everyone received my letter yesterday regarding the delay to the new build.  It is disappointing, but we have happily operated from Whatley Avenue for the last two years and I know that we can continue to do this for the first half term of next academic year.  


At the moment, we do not know what the government advice will be with regards to all students returning to secondary schools in September, but as soon as we know, we will finalise our plans and let you know.


In the meantime, the government have said that we can invite all students into school for a review meeting before the end of term.  We plan to invite all students into the academy between the 10th and 15th July.  We are currently putting the plans together for this and are very much looking forward to seeing everyone.  We will send out more information next Friday on how this will all work. 


Next week, the students will be set a ‘significant’ piece of work in each subject and there is a link in the newsletter so you can see an overview.  Thank you for the tremendous job you are doing home schooling your children.  Please keep encouraging them to respond to virtual registration by 8.45am and to complete and submit all their work.


We understand the challenges of caring for families, working and supporting with home schooling so please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can support you.


I wish you a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
