Dear Parents/Carers and students
Welcome back from the two week break. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for continuing to provide a stimulating education for our students under very difficult circumstances. I would also like to thank the support staff who are making contact with students to ensure that they are managing the current situation.
This week, we all celebrated the amazing fundraising achievements of Captain Tom Moore. What he achieved embodied the fighting spirit of the people in our country. We will draw on his accomplishments to give us strength to continue to provide the very best for our students.
We wish that you and your families continue to be safe and healthy.
Easter Holiday Lockdown Activities

“Thank you to all the teachers who are still continuing to set us work and helping our education. I miss every single one of my friends and I can’t wait to see you all again. Stay safe and see you soon”
Mariyah Mohammed, 8 Pankhurst
For the covid 19 activities I picked the idea 4 and took a few pictures of the nature I found in my garden.
I have also been doing meetings at home about different things like: fashion, jobs and sports. The meetings are with family to teach them about what I know about some of my hobbies and interests. I involved a survey at the end to analyse and think about what else I can involve in my meetings.
My message to students and staff at this time is: This isn't the easiest of times, but try to be patient and not worry. Always try to look on the bright side and have some fun. Do what you love but also make the most of the spare time you have now. Use the time you have now and do a few activities and enjoy the time at home even though it can be hard
Chloe Weir, 8 Nightingale

Another excellent video! This time from Sumaiya Khan in year 8. Well done!
I wanted to share with you part of my enrichment is a daily run, the miles I run I then donate in pounds to the NHS charity.

We would recommend that all students stick to their regular routine and timings of the school day which will help you keep on top of the workload that is expected of you.

Also known as marketing psychologists, consumer psychologists research consumer behaviour and develop marketing strategies to promote businesses.
