Key Worker Letter to Parent

Following the recent announcement by the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Education, the Government has advised schools in England to close, except for certain groups of children from this Friday afternoon (20th March) onwards as a further measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  No date has been set for when schools will re-open for all students.

It is important that students don’t consider this to be an extended holiday period.  Students will be set work to do at home in TEAMS.  Some work will involve using various Apps such as  MyMaths, Hegarty Maths, EduCake, BBC Bitesite, PiXl and Seneca Learning. We are advising that where possible, students follow their normal timetable at home. We ask parents and carers to support their children in being proactively engaged in their learning and in completing the tasks that are set.

In order to support students when learning from home we have collated key content, tasks and activities to be completed.  Each subject area has identified work that should be completed for each year group / key stage.  Further details can be found on the school website.  Students that have technical difficulties should email StudentITSupport@bkcat.co.uk

 

Thank you for your support at this difficult time, we will continue to provide further updates when more information becomes available.

Interim Headteacher
