Update from Jon Whitcombe, Trust Principal -
As you will be aware, the DfE has stated that Year 10 and Year 12 students will receive some “face to face” contact with their teachers during Term 6. Currently, we are awaiting guidance from the DfE as to what this means in practice.
Once the guidance is published we will develop our plans and make the necessary arrangements. On June 1st we will write to you explaining what “face to face” means in practice and we will be in a position to confirm when this will commence.
Please note that the current arrangements for online teaching for Years 10 and 12 will continue until further notice.- Read More
