Here you will find everything you need to know in relation to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and how it affects schools. You will also see what we as a school are doing about it.
Since it has been a year since we first starting our new trend of virtual assemblies. We thought it might be time to take a look back at all of the amazing work Waddesdon staff and students have put in to making these assemblies happen and allowing us to be able to keep our daily assembly tradition going even if these different times.
Full School Re-Opening: March 8th 2021
We have published to parents a full plan for the re-opening of the school, including the process for running asymptomatic testing. If you have any questions relating to the full re-opening, please contact us via email@example.com.
We have switched delivery of our curriculum and pastoral support on-line as required during the latest National Lockdown. We recognise the challenges of supporting your children with remote learning and do not underestimate the emotional demands that this will place on you and your children. Our job is to work with you on this and to support all of our students’ needs as best as we can.
We will respond to any individual enquiries or concerns as swiftly as we are able.
Students will register daily to receive support from their friends and also to stay in contact with their form teacher. Should you wish to contact your child’s Head of Year, you can do this by sending an email to the Office email address. The lessons will be a blend of ‘live’ lessons delivered through Microsoft Teams and work set on Show My Homework. Research from the Education Endowment Fund indicates that this blend of approaches will best support your son or daughter. It also reflect parental preference as recorded through the survey sent out at the end of the first Lockdown.
If you need to talk to us about your child working in school during this period, please email the Office email address. Your email will be forwarded to Mr Sturla.
In our continued efforts to keep you fully up-to-date during this time, we have put together a short video which gives you a flavour of how we have implemented elements of our Risk Assessment into our routines at Waddesdon School.
In the event of school closure, all students are expected to complete the online work set by their teachers on ‘Show My Homework’ each day, unless they are unable to do so through illness. Please send any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular updates will be given via letters and newsletters which will be posted below.
