This is a short update following the announcement last night by the Prime Minister and Secretary
of State for education about the changing role of schools in the weeks and months ahead. I am
sure, like me, you are still trying to digest what has been said and I am also sure that, like me,
you have many unanswered questions. I will update you again later on today as soon as I receive
more information from the government.
I would like all parents/carers to understand that schools are being asked to fulfil a very different
role in the weeks and months ahead. Please be patient with us while we try and clarify exactly
how this will work in practice. However, one thing I do know is that we must all work together
for the benefit of our community and our nation to get through the difficult times ahead.
In the short term, can I reassure parents/carers and students in Year 11, that even though not
all the details have been decided by the government yet, we will continue to do all we can to
ensure you are able to go onto the next stage of your lives.
Kind regards and please take care
