Key Questions and Updates

We are very much looking forward to welcoming back our students to school tomorrow. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces on Thursday and Friday last week. Over 800 students came into school for their first LFD tests. They were absolutely magnificent. Their calmness and maturity was brilliant to see. Despite some nerves, everyone handled the process really well, and we even saw some smiles on the way out afterwards!!

We would also like to thank our brilliant testing team consisting of our admin and support staff. Their work in supporting and reassuring students and making the whole process quick and professional has been fantastic.

We will be inducting students on their arrival to their first full school day to ensure their transition back into school from lockdown is a smooth and supportive one.

Whilst all schools are returning full time, there are still many existing and new COVID safe restrictions and procedures which need to be followed to keep everyone safe. Our students were magnificent in this during the autumn term and we are confident this will not be any different this time.

Over the course of this lockdown remote learning period, we have been blown away with the efforts and achievements our students have managed, evidence of which can seen in our huge Praise List and Praise Wall features. This could not have happened without the support of families at home and our wider community.

Thank you for your continued support.

Please take care!

Mr Mckeon
