Letter from the Headteacher: Year 7,8 & 9 Parents

Dear Parent/Carer,

Provision for the Summer Term

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your continued support throughout this period.    We have endeavoured, as a school, to support your child’s education through our online provision.  This will continue to be extremely important for all students in year 7, 8 and 9 for the remainder of the summer term.   

From the week beginning 15th June, the Government have announced the wider opening of secondary schools for Year 10 students.  They will be starting back next week on a phased return. At school we have been busy preparing the site for students to return next week and for September following the very latest advice on social distancing and personal hygiene.

Staff Training Day – Monday 15th June

On Monday 15th June, Churchmead staff will be attending a training day to prepare for students returning to the school site. There will be no online provision on this day. We encourage students to use the time to catch up on work and assignments already set.

Going forward we will need to adopt more flexible approaches to student timetables to enable the onsite provision to take place. We remain committed to the to our online learning programmes and we will continue to upload students work on Microsoft Teams. It is essential that students manage their workload, as they have not been in school for quite some time. Remember also that work pack provision is available for students.  Please contact the school to request the packs by calling main reception or sending an email to office@churchmead.org. If you require academic support, help or advice please contact your son/daughters Tutor or Head of Year.

For now, please stay safe and well and look after each other during this unprecedented time.

Yours faithfully

Mr C Tomes - Headteacher
