Year 10 Student Forum

Year 10 Student Forum

Dear Year 10 students.

We will be hosting a Year 10 Student Forum on Thursday 25th February at 3.00pm. This will be run as an MS Teams meeting and will be an opportunity for you to speak to your Head of Year and members of the Senior Leadership Team about any of the following issues:

  • Coping with stress
  • Managing workload
  • Concerns about exams/assessments
  • Wellbeing concerns/queries
  • General issues

We realise how challenging the last 6-7 weeks have been and want to give you the opportunity to share your views and opinions on how you have found all aspects of your learning during the lockdown.

The forum will be a mixture of Q&A and discussion and will be quite fluid in nature, being led by the issues you raise during the forum. If you are interested in joining, it would be beneficial for you to have your questions and concerns written down beforehand. Throughout the forum, we will be making use of Spiral to give you the opportunity to submit your concerns privately to staff if you wish to.

During a regular school day, you would have numerous opportunities to interact with staff and ask questions and this has not been possible over the last few weeks, so this is an opportunity for you to air your concerns and receive support on any issue.

If you would like to be invited to the Year 10 Student Forum, please can you email Mr Ishtiaq at aishtiaq@tottington.shaw-education.org.uk by no later than 4pm Wednesday 24th February to secure your invite. We anticipate that the forum will run for no longer than 45 minutes, but we can adjust this if necessary.

Please note:
If you do not email Mr Ishtiaq requesting an invite, you will not be able to attend the meeting.
This is a STUDENT FORUM so parents/carers will not be extended invites.

Headteacher’s Half-Term Letter to Students

Headteacher’s Half-Term Letter to Students

Dear students

As we reach half term, we would all like to say a big well done to everyone for engaging so positively with remote learning. We hope you have enjoyed having more engagement with your teachers and fellow students. It is not the same as being in school, we know, but hopefully you have found the lessons interesting and enjoyable.

We really understand and appreciate the impact that lockdown will be having on everyone – it is not an easy time for anyone and just a reminder that, if you need any support, then please let us know at school. Attached for you to watch is a short Youtube video by Dr Alex George a consultant in an A and E department in a London hospital. It might give you some basic tips to help you over half term to ensure that you get some rest and some relaxation.

Thank you for completing the online questionnaire recently. We now have the results of the questionnaire and the additional comments and we will be making contact with those students and parents who have requested it. Overwhelmingly, you have said that you are enjoying and appreciating the online learning and that you much prefer it to uploaded resources. Some of you have said that you feel a bit overwhelmed with the amount of work that we have been setting you: please remember that you can only do your best and that this is all we expect of you. If you have asked for some further support via the questionnaire, we will be in touch.

We all hope that you have a good half term and we look forward to carrying on our remote learning after half term – hopefully, by then, we will know the latest national plans for schools returning.

With very best wishes, Mrs Brett
