We hope you all had a restful Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term!

We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so we wanted to take the chance to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time.

It has definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s understandable if you and your child feel anxious and frustrated at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together.

Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by contacting your child’s class teacher for lesson support of their Head of Year for any pastoral/wellbeing concerns in the first instance.

We miss having the pupils in school, but we must continue to follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with our distance learning program whereby we will endeavour to deliver at least 7 live audio/chat lessons per week to your child(ren) via Microsoft Teams. Staff may also email work directly to students and as a minimum a workbook for each student exists in our bespoke Covid-19 guidance web page https://www.bewdley.worcs.sch.uk/covid-19. To centralise communication, we have reiterated to our staff that all communication regarding lessons/work will be through Show my Homework.

Our teachers will be setting plenty of tasks for pupils to get stuck into over the summer term. Do remind your child to take breaks away from screens as well as making time for having fun and connecting with friends and family.

While we can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep pupils learning and the school connected. Mr Chauhan will also be writing to you during the week regarding your child’s wellbeing and were to seek support.
