WEEK 26 - Friday 16 April 2021
Hello and welcome to this week’s Year 10 Blog.
This week the Nation reached the long awaited milestone and the first steps to the full reopening of our shops and infrastructure, and with the sun shining it felt ‘almost’ normal.
The Year 10s have continued to impress me with their positive attitude and behaviour and have responded well to the new procedures put into place at the end of the last lock down. It has also been great to see so many Year 10s taking part in the Lateral Flow Device (LFD) testing to help keep both themselves and others safe.
Please continue to remind your son or daughter about the importance of following the school uniform policy, having the correct equipment (planner, stationary and face mask) as well as being punctual. Students are expected to be on the school site no later than 08:30.
Over the past two weeks, the Year 10s have continued with their careers interviews which once again provides the young people with the opportunity to focus on their potential post sixteen careers pathway and future employment. Can I ask that you encourage your son or daughter to have a conversation about their career choices and the large number of opportunities available to them within the local area.
With the Year 11s starting their final weeks of schooling it is a timely reminder that in the not so distant future the Year 10s will be moving into Year 11 and the start of their final year in school. If you have any questions or concerns about this ‘next step’ please do not hesitate to contact me on the email below.
As always, communication is crucial, and as we continue to move towards the end of Year 10, I believe that by maintaining communication we will be able to best help the young people. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via the school number or the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care and stay safe.
