Dear Parents/Carers and Students
I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well. It’s almost the end of January and I have noticed that the birds are starting to sing at dawn again! The dawn chorus is my absolute favourite sound and it has reminded me of the visit we had last year from Sound Recordist, Chris Watson, who played us his recordings in surround sound in the LRC! If you want to listen to Chris’ podcast, please go to:
Have you registered to take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend? Good fun and I can’t think of anything better during a national lockdown! You can register here:
A reminder that our latest risk assessments can be found here.
The Department for Education have confirmed that schools will not be expected to remain open during February half term. We will of course continue with contact-tracing for any positive cases who were in school the week before we broke up. If your child/ward tests positive please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This week we surveyed students to find out their thoughts on our remote learning provision so far. We will now look at the feedback and Mr Moroney will summarise and share the findings next week.
