Letter from Head Teacher, Karen Bennett following Prime Minister, Boris Johnson's lockdown announcement.
4th January 2021
I have just listened to Boris Johnson's speech, I would like to remind you that all of the students at Will Adams are regarded as vulnerable and as such we will be open as arranged tomorrow.
I look forward to continue working with you and your family to ensure the wellbeing, safety and education for our young people. Please be reassured that we have made every effort today to ensure their safety but we do need students to abide by the rules that we have put in place today and I know that Form Tutors have explained plans this afternoon to you. This includes the ‘hands, face ,space’ guidance.
With the Government looking at alternatives to exams it is vital that students complete coursework and additional testing over the next few weeks. Please rest assured that we anticipated this action and are on track to ensure that with the work planned over the next few weeks we will be able to provide strong teacher assessments, but we need the students in to make the progress.
Please feel free to email me with any questions/concerns you may have this evening.
