Happy New Year to you all. It has been an interesting first week to the new year. We all left for the Christmas holidays thinking we would be back together in January, then in the middle of the holidays we thought we would have remote education for two weeks, and then found out on Monday that we will have remote education for the first half term. In addition, we are all aware of the increased number of coronavirus cases in London. For me, the most important thing is that we all stay safe and well and look after each other in these challenging circumstances. We anticipated that we may have to switch to remote learning at some point in the year and so we were ready to go with all of our systems. I hope all of your children have managed to access their lessons; I know the majority have, as I have had really positive feedback from the teachers about how well students have engaged in this new way of working. I must pay tribute to the teachers who have adapted their lessons in a very short amount of time. We are committed to providing an outstanding education at all times. There may be some teething issues so please bear with us but as soon as we know there is an issue, we quickly resolve it. Now we know that the period of remote education has been extended from two weeks until at least six weeks, we will begin to introduce some house competitions and extracurricular activities that students can choose to do if they would like to. Students should be focused on their school work from 8.30am – 3pm everyday and then they must turn off their screens and I suggest get some fresh air and exercise between 3pm and 4pm. We are always here to help anyone in our community, so if you require any help or support, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please stay safe and well. Warm regards, Mrs Larizadeh
