With the coronavirus lockdown, parents and carers are having to help their children learn remotely. Young people will also be turning to their parents, carers or guardians for career support.
This is a challenging time for parents, especially for those with children in their final year of school. The attached Careermag for Parents may be able to help.
It includes labour market information and qualification routes so teenagers can seek guidance from their parents to make well informed decisions on their futures. Parents have always been big influences on young people’s decisions. Given the current pandemic, they will play even more of a role on their teenagers’ options.
We are in regular contact with the Tour operator and are hopeful that the trip next year will continue to go ahead as planned.
The next instalment is currently due. However, given the current situation, we have decided to offer families the flexibility to delay this payment until September. Hopefully, by this time we will have a better understanding of what is happening.
We will keep you updated as and when we get any further information.
We understand that this is a difficult time for all of us so if you have any concerns or questions regarding the trip please don’t hesitate in contacting us.
Dear parents and carers
I hope the first week without school hasn’t been too challenging for too many of you. On the positive side, there has certainly been a real sense of everyone pulling together to make things work as well as possible and I have found this truly heart-warming.
A few points by way of an update here:
I think that’s it for now. Have a lovely weekend.
Please be assured that all unspent school meal balances will be returned to your ParentPay account, without the need for you to make an individual request.
This will be completed as part of our school closure process. To help our staff cope at this challenging time, we would ask that you do not make individual requests to the school (which risks delaying completion of this process), unless you have an outstanding query with your child’s account.
We are liaising with ParentPay direct. School staff will be working next week to communicate our plans.
Thank you for your patience.
