During our online learning programme, we will continue to use our system of merits to reward pupils’ good behaviour, achievements and effort. These will be recorded, gathered and monitored by the Head of Year. Pupils’ work will be acknowledged and celebrated via the newsletter, assemblies and form times. In instances of disruptive behaviour during our online learning programme, de-merits will be issued, following two warnings. If a pupil receives two demerits, parents will be informed via email. Merits will continue to be logged by teachers and Heads of Year and will contribute to the overall House Point total.
During this difficult time, we would like to encourage you all to show your support for the NHS; many of you are probably already doing so. We would like to encourage all our students to take part in the “Clap for the NHS” when it takes place and perhaps think of sending cards (with rainbows on) to our nearby NHS hospitals and clinics. However, if you can, then it would be also really helpful to donate to the overarching NHS Charities Together where your donation can then be used where it is needed most, either to buy Personal Protection Equipment or medicine and equipment.
Pastoral concerns or queries
It is important that pupils and parents know that we are here to support them during our Online Teaching and Learning Programme. Wellbeing Check-ins will be held twice/thrice weekly in small pupil groups for our pupils to discuss and share their learning, the opportunity to celebrate successes, and to provide a forum to ask questions and raise any issues.
If you have any pastoral or wellbeing concerns, please contact your child’s form teacher in the first instance.
