Dear Parents/Carers,

September

You will have heard, no doubt, of the Government's ambition to get all students back into school, full-time from September. This is something I fully support, however, the guidance from the Department for Education only came out today and there is much for us to consider to ensure we can do this safely. We will work hard on a plan and update you as soon as we possibly can.

The next academic year doesn't officially start until Thursday 3rd September. Normally we hold staff training on the first two days, however, the staff at Liskeard have agreed to return early. Instead of returning on Thursday 3rd, staff will now come back on Tuesday 1st September. We will use the Tuesday and Wednesday for training, then use the Thursday and Friday of that week to hold individual Tutor Meetings for students in Years 8 to 13 and induction days for our new Year 7s. We hope that the full timetable will then commence on Monday 7th September. As above, I will update you about this in more detail as soon as I can.

End of Term

In preparation for September, I would like to invite all students from Years 7 to 9 into school for a 're-connect' session with their tutor on one of the last three days of term. We have worked out a plan that would enable students to attend with half of their tutor group and be in keeping with the current guidelines. I believe a visit to school, albeit for a short session, will help alleviate any anxieties students may have about returning in September. It will also be an opportunity to catch up with their tutor, peers and go through what September may look like. Please look out for an update about these sessions in the next few days.

The majority of Year 10s and Year 12s have been attending school part-time over the last few weeks. We are only allowed to have a quarter of the year group in at any one time, but we do have some spaces available if any students who haven't yet been in, would like to attend for the last 3 weeks.

Also, before the end of term, students will receive an end of year report. For Y7 to 10, these are just a summary of certain aspects of schooling, plus a comment from your child's tutor. For Y12, the reports will include comments from subject teachers.

Once again, may I thank you for your continued support. I will be in touch again soon with details of the above.

Best wishes,

Alex Lingard
