Co-Principals' Letters to Parents
22nd May 2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
As Co-Principals we continue to be impressed by the engagement of students with their learning and wish to thank all parents and carers for their continued support.
We would like to take this opportunity to briefly share with you our intended plans for the return of Year 10 and 12 students and the changes to our provision for students in Years 7-9. More specific guidance for each year group will be issued during the first week of June.
Year 10 and Year 12 Face to Face Sessions
Pupils will receive face to face sessions for a number of subjects from Monday 8th June. Session start times will be staggered throughout the day and the week. Pupils will receive a personalised letter detailing the day, time and venue of their allocated session(s).
Year 10 students will be expected to attend one ninety-minute session per week. Year 12 students will be expected to attend three one-hour sessions per week if they study three subjects or four one-hour sessions per week if they study four subjects.
All sessions will be delivered by subject specialists under strict social distancing guidelines.
These plans are subject to government ratification on Thursday 28th May.
We have included links to the latest guidance below so you may see for yourself the actions we are working through. We have also included a link to the latest advice that has been published for parents and carers.
Students in Years 7-9
Currently there is no indication that pupils in Years 7- 9 will be expected to return to school before the summer holidays.
We know that you are all looking for different ways to sustain and support your children with their home learning. Therefore, we are really excited to be launching our weekly on-line lessons, for years 7, 8 and 9 starting the week beginning 8th June. These will be delivered by a different subject each week beginning with The Humanities Heroes Investigates Live.
More information on how to access these and the full programme of lessons will be coming out straight after half-term.
From Monday 1st June we look forward to delivering live assemblies for pupils in all year groups. Please check the Hatton Academy Twitter page https://twitter.com/HeartofHatton for days and times and Edulink for links to access these assemblies. The Academy will continue to provide remote learning via Edulink for all students during the continued period of school closure.
If you have any questions and/or difficulties accessing the work set on Edulink please get in touch with us via email at email@example.com.
We would like to reassure you all that we will continue do our very best for all our students, and we once again hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well.
