Dear Baylis Court Community
I hope you are well and that your family is safe and healthy. I know that there have been some within our community who have suffered a recent bereavement and I would like to say that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
You would have noticed a lot in the news about primary students returning back to school on 1st June. The Government is keen for this to happen, so that parents are able to return to work and students can return to school. However, the Government is aware that any decision to open schools must be made with the highest consideration given to the health of students, staff and ultimately the health of the wider community.
The Prime Minister said that it is the ‘ambition’ of the UK Government that students in Years 10 and 12 receive ‘face-to-face support’, before the end of this academic year. Our staff are already providing face-to-face support to our students in Years 10 and 12. However, when the Government releases its guidance, we will make the necessary adjustments to what we are already providing our students.
We will keep you informed of any changes that we make.
Next week is the last week of term. Please continue to encourage your daughter to engage in online learning and if they find it difficult to connect online we have booklets of work available at school. Let us know and we will send work to you.
Have a great sunny weekend!
There is a new free MyTutor Online School, which they have designed to offer additional support to learners at this time.They will be sharing daily lunchtime live group webinar tutorials, as well as short explainer videos and written resources, covering common tricky topics across a range of GCSE subjects.
These are all completely free - students just need to sign up using the link above and join live sessions via Zoom video link. All previous sessions are also available on our YouTube channel.
