New National Restrictions from 5 November 2020

By All School News

Schools continue to remain open for all children and young people as they have since the start of the autumn term for the duration of the national restrictions.

Being at school is vital for children’s education and for their wellbeing. Time spent out of school is detrimental for children’s cognitive and academic development, particularly for disadvantaged children. This impact can affect both current levels of education, and children’s future ability to learn. It continues to be our aim that all pupils, in all year groups, remain in school full-time.

The risk to children themselves of becoming severely ill from coronavirus (COVID-19) is very low and there are negative health impacts of being out of school. For the vast majority of children, the benefits of being back in the classroom far outweigh the low risk from coronavirus (COVID-19) and schools can take action to reduce risks still further.

Form 3 Hockey Fixture

By All School News

On Tuesday 10th March, Form 3 had a fantastic afternoon taking part in their first hockey fixtures against Orchard House School.

The class were divided into two teams (Blues and Purples) to play against Orchard House. Despite only having a couple of hockey lessons this year, you certainly couldn’t tell they were playing their first matches , winning 2 and drawing 3 of their 6 games played.

The Blues and Purples both demonstrated fantastic team work in attacking and defending, with all of them being assertive in their play and effectively contributing to their teams’ performances.

The girls will continue to work on their spacing out and structure across the pitch during lessons, which will allow them to attack with greater speed through passing over longer distances using the width and height on the pitch.

Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported the Form 3 in their matches, we hope you enjoyed it as much as they did!
