Head Teacher Update Sunday 28/2/21

Dear Parents and Students

When we broke for the Christmas Holidays on 22nd December, we expected to see everyone back at school on the 18th January. We have now completed 6 weeks of online learning and I know that students, parents and staff have been finding it hard to keep the momentum going. It was, therefore, heartening to welcome back some senior students last week. Senior students will continue to attend lessons (albeit in small numbers) to complete aspects of their course work, that cannot be done at home, in preparation for practical assessment. Unfortunately, the range of activities we are able to offer is restricted in some subjects, such as PE, and we hope that this will be relaxed as we move into the next phase. (more…)

Head Teacher Update 18/2/21

Dear Parents and Students

I am writing today to explain our plan to bring groups of senior students back into school to engage in essential learning in preparation for practical assessment. This is the most complicated change we have so far been asked to put into operation. Although this mainly affects senior students, it will have implications for all students and for how we are able to deliver online learning going forward. Please read on to find out how this will impact your child. (more…)

Head Teacher Update, 5/2/21

Dear Parents and Students

We have made it to half-term, and we can all now enjoy a well-deserved break from school-work. Next week should give everyone a chance to re-charge their batteries, ready for whatever comes our way. (I stopped trying to predict these things a long time ago.) You might be glad to hear that today’s update is shorter than usual, with only a few pieces of key information to share. (more…)

Head Teacher Update 31/1/21

Dear Parents and Students

When we closed school for the Christmas holidays on 22nd December, little did any of us know that we would still be working remotely and learning online. Next week we enter our fourth week of online learning. We know this situation will continue until at least the middle of February, and we await the First Minister’s announcement on Tuesday 2nd February to provide an update on when we might return to school. This uncertainty is difficult for everyone and we need to support each other and find strategies to sustain motivation.

I should like to remind you of the supports available on our Online Learning Page, including a reminder of the school day and our Student Guide to Learning from Home. (more…)
