Year 11 Parents’ Evening will go ahead on 14th January 2021 via the video conferencing Parents’ Evening system used back in November. A link can be found on the school website. Please book with you son/daughter’s teachers as before. We would be grateful if you would also complete the Parent View survey using the link below:
In September I wrote to you to inform you that the school is part of the National Online Safety community and I’d like to remind you to join the learning hub through the link below if you have not done so already:
Please watch the how to use video once you log in.
There are a number of useful guides that will help you to keep your children safe online. I have attached the ‘Remote education, 10 top tips for parents’ which you may find useful. There are also a number of courses you may find interesting to complete.
Following the recent change of advice regarding self-isolation from 14 days to 10 days, we are updating you on the return to school for the Year 10 students.
A number of parents have been in contact to clarify the situation.
We have contacted Essex Test & Trace for specific advice based on the context of the school taking into account our knowledge of the students who are waiting for covid-19 test results or self-isolating.
Therefore, until we receive specific advice, at the current time Year 10 students will not be expected to attend school on Tuesday 15 December.
However, if following advice from Essex Test & Trace, students may be expected to return to school later in the week.
We will update you as soon as we have the information.
Our apologies for not being able to provide you with a more definitive decision at this time.

We appreciate the challenging circumstances at the current time but we have to encourage you to ensure your child attends school.
If any student is required to be absent from school due to any restrictions linked to COVID, work will be supplied and their absence will be authorised.
However, if you choose not to send your child to school we will not supply work and absence will be unauthorised.
