Please read this letter and guide for details of how to book appointments for the Year 9 Online Progress Evening (9JMU, 9CHA, 9AHM, 9JBR).
As promised just a few days ago, here are some updates in relation to examinations, following the most recent Government announcements.
With the Prime Minister having addressed the nation last night, mentioning the lockdown and the implications for schools, you were no doubt expecting yet another update from me!
Following on from the DfE announcement last night we would like to take this opportunity to share a few thoughts to hopefully put your mind and your son/daughter’s mind at rest.
After just one day of the spring term, it is all change again! You will all know by now that remote learning will be in place until the February half term.
As you are aware, for the first week of term your learning will be completed at home, through a mixture of Teams lessons and resources on Firefly.
For students Accessing Workington Academy Hub Provision from Monday 04 January 2021
You may well be aware that this evening the Secretary of State for Education has announced a material change to the arrangements made for the start of term.
The Government yesterday afternoon updated its guidance regarding the start of term in January and has advised that secondary schools in England should not fully re-open to all students and staff following the Christmas holidays until Monday 11 January.
Once again, it has been a very busy term at Workington Academy. Despite all the challenges facing the students this term, student behaviour, attitudes and responsibility have been exemplary and in spite of many different and sometimes difficult circumstances, there is much to celebrate across all year groups.
