Thank you for your support in ensuring that your children are kept safe at home and are engaging with online learning. We have launched our Covid-19 section on our website to help with this: https://www.bewdley.worcs.sch.uk/covid-19/, this section contains all our latest news, along with study resources for Years 7 to 10 should students require further work to do while at home
Over the last 3 days we have had 9 reducing to 7 students in school on Monday; 3 students on Tuesday and 1 student today. We are likely to have a maximum of 2 or 3 students each day going forwards. We are therefore delighted that Bewdley Primary School, who are having 15+ students in school each day, have kindly agreed to merge provision with us.
What this means in practice is that any vulnerable children or children of key workers will have educational provision at the Primary School. There will be a secondary school teacher to support students and a laptop available for students to engage with online learning, in exactly the same way as we have been doing over the last few days. If you need a place for your child at any point or you have any queries, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will liaise with Bewdley Primary School to make arrangements. Remember that government guidance states:
“Many families with parents working in critical sectors will be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.”
This is a massive help to us all in terms of reducing the number of people in transit, and we are extremely grateful to Mrs Woakes and all at the Primary School for their flexibility and support. We will be working with other providers to support the Primary School in offering wider educational experiences over the Easter holidays, and will offer ongoing support for day to day provision. We will have more to say in due course about our online learning programme and other issues, including forward planning beyond the current circumstances.
In the meantime stay safe and stay home.
