Dear parents and guardians,

We are pleased to let you know that from next week we will be trialling some live tutor times with students. These are aimed at students having contact with their tutor or another member of staff from their house, as well as having the opportunity to interact with some of their peers from their tutor groups who they may not have had contact with for a long time.

We are aiming to have this in place for next week through Microsoft Teams. Students should have received passwords and log ins for this earlier in the week through their school email. The tutor times will be staggered through the week to account for households with multiple siblings and potentially limited devices. For Y11 tutor time will take place at 9am on a Friday.

In scenarios where the Microsoft Teams meeting is not starting at 9am the tutor will be in contact through Show My Homework noticeboard to indicate the alternate time.

We appreciate that as we move forward to enhance our offer with some live sessions that there may be some teething problems. Where this is the case we will work to rectify them as quickly and efficiently as possible.

If you have any queries or questions then please do not hesitate to contact.

Regards, Mr Keeling

Assistant Headteacher
