Additional Training Day: January 9th, 2017


Dear Parent or Carer,

Additional Training Day: January 9th, 2017

I am writing to you to inform you that we will be holding an additional training day for staff on January 9th, 2017. This means that on that day the school will not be open to pupils and students. I apologise for any inconvenience that this causes you, but I hope that you appreciate the urgency of this day in the light of our recent inspection report. I also hope that by giving you sufficient notice of the change that you are able to put in place childcare arrangements. School will open to pupils and students at the usual time on Tuesday, January 10th.

I am particularly mindful that Year 11 pupils have their mocks in January and will miss a day of school. However, all departments will provide substantial and robust revision materials for over the Christmas break and for some departments additional study time has been arranged in the first week of term.

Our inspection report contains a number of areas on which we have been hard at work since October. However, our next scheduled training day is April 7th and this is required for exam moderation work that cannot be undertaken at another time. An additional training day affords us the opportunity to ensure that the many changes we are implementing address the Ofsted Areas for Improvement and secure better outcomes more quickly.

Shortly we will be publishing our post-inspection plans on our website. I enjoyed the opportunity to discuss these plans at our post-Ofsted meeting for parents on December 13th. The questions asked by parents and carers at this meeting, along with my answers, will also be published on our website. Improving our school is a collective effort that relies on collaboration between staff, pupils and parents.

I look forward to seeing you and am always available to discuss the school should you wish to do so. Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Davis
