Aldridge School was delighted to welcome back D.C. Bradley of West Midlands Police to present his hard hitting knife crime message.
Today we have received the first instructions to schools regarding the awarding of grades for this summer’s GCSE and A Level candidates who are not able to sit examinations.
We are now in week 2 of the national lockdown and I wanted to send you some information about how we are working.
This page contains information relating to the closure of the school following the governments directive that all schools should close indefinitely from Friday 20th March 2020. You’ll find details on how to ask for your password to be reset, links to work to be completed during the closure, links to past exam papers, details of how to access Google Classroom and all of our COVID-19 letters. We intend to update the work uploaded so please check back frequently.
Further details regarding the issuing of grades for GCSE and A Level candidates has been released this afternoon and can be found here .
Further to my earlier letter, our aim today has been to clarify which students are eligible to attend school next week and who to expect on Monday morning. It is still entirely possible, and I think likely, that through the start of next week we will be continuing to revise and change plans in response to the availability of staff and the advice from the government.
As part of our induction process we normally hold a series of events in June and July to help students and
parents/guardians prepare for the move. Given the current situation in respect of coronavirus, school
closures and social distancing measures, we wanted to reassure you that even if the calendared events
have to be cancelled we will ensure that all appropriate paperwork and information you may need will be
sent out to you.
Following the government announcement yesterday regarding the closure of schools to most students we are working on a plan which we hope to communicate to you tomorrow through email and the school website. I am sure you will appreciate how difficult this is with limited staff and little guidance and I hope you can bear with us as we work things out and continue to respond as inevitable further changes come in the next few days and weeks.
