Coronavirus family briefing number 6: 17.00 Wednesday 25th March 2020
Dear families,
Welcome to today’s briefing note and a huge thank you and well done for everyone who took part in the trial today and has managed to access the lessons, activities and resources online.
This is way of working is new to all of us, but we have certainly seen some excellent and innovative practice today. It was also very nice for the boys to be able to make contact with each other this way.
We will continue to work this way for the next week until the end of term and will be very interested to hear your feedback. If you are experiencing any issues with the technology please contact Dean Moulder on dmoulder@swalcliffepark.co.uk.
For any issues relating to KS 3 lessons contact Chris Heslip on cheslip@swalcliffepark.co.uk
For any issues relating to KS4 lessons contact Andy Sears on asears@swalcliffepark.co.uk
For any issues relating to 6th Form lessons contact Les Robinson on lrobinson@swalcliffepark.co.uk
Free school meals:
We mentioned this yesterday that we are aware that some families may be eligible for free school meals, and that if this is the case all you need to do is contact Rob Piner on rpiner@swallciffepark.co.uk and we will look into this with you and see how we can help. We appreciate that these are difficult times and want to make sure we are doing all we can to help. Please be reassured that this will be considered in strictest confidence.
Keyworking:
As part of our keeping in touch with students and families, keyworkers will be sending a daily ‘check in’ email and will be holding a telephone or video keyworking session on Friday. They will try their best to work around arrangements that work best for you.
If you haven’t had a chance to complete your latest QoL survey, keyworkers will be able to help organise and support this. It is at times like this when the surveys have extra significance due to the uncertainties of the current situation and the increased pressures of changes of routines, social distancing and self-isolation. As always we will be using the results to see how we can support everyone in the most effective ways.
We will be in touch with a further briefing update tomorrow, but if you have any questions or concerns in the meantime please feel free contact any of us.
With best wishes and thanks to you all,
Kiran, Rob and Rob.
