The college remains closed for the majority of students and there is no expectation that students will then attend college until the advice from the Government changes.
While our college is closed for general admissions, all schools across the country are being asked to run an emergency service for the children of key workers in essential services so that they are able to continue to work. However, this is working on the premise that you should only send your child to college if there is no safe alternative.
Year 10 Provision
As I am sure you are aware the government guidance for schools changed on 12 May to state;
‘we will ask secondary schools, sixth form and further education colleges to offer some face-to-face support to supplement the remote education of year 10 and year 12 students’
At Henry Cort, we have given carefully consideration as to how can we apply this government guidance, whilst minimising the risk to staff and ensuring Year 10 students get the support they need. Please read the Year 10 Provision letter from Ms Cubbage for details.
Online materials and learning
There will be online resources available to support children to continue to learn. All learning activities will be set on ClassCharts by Monday 8:00am for the week to be completed by Friday 14:00pm that week. This will enable your child work at their own pace and around your family.
If during this time, your child, or you, need any safeguarding advice, please contact the safeguarding team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support through these unprecedented times and urge you and your children, to be responsible. Please be assured that I will continue to update you as the situation changes and that we will continue to work for the best interests of the children at our college.
