Online Learning Letter

Update on provision from Wednesday 6th January 2021

Dear Parents/carers

LWS will continue to offer on site provision for all our students. However, if you determine that you do not wish to send your son to our school site due to the current COVID related national circumstances we invite students to engage with their normal daily timetable remotely. Please talk to your son’s tutor to support, assist and facilitate as required. 

We expect all students that attend our site to maintain a good social distance, wash hands regularly and wear face masks when moving around the school site. 

Temperature checks on arrival and hand sanitiser will be completed on arrival to site.

Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions on 01489 582684 or enquiries@lws.gfmat.org

Important announcement regarding the start of the Spring term

 

Following the release of government guidance on the 17th December. This statement aims to clarify and reassure all parents/ carers with regards to the start date and arrangements from the 4th January 2021. The Department for Education (DfE) has stated that all Specialist and Alternative Provisions, vulnerable students (including those with an EHCP), key worker children and those in Year 11 should start the new school term as normal. 

 

As you would have likely seen/ heard in the news, the government will also be offering mass testing for all secondary age pupils, as well as staff, to ensure that children are in school as much as possible. More details will be shared with parents during the first week of term regarding in-school testing and expectations.

 

For schools who are opening as normal in January, the DfE have offered schools the opportunity to take Monday 4th January as an extra Inset day. This day will be used for schools to formulate their in-school testing schedules for both students and staff. Therefore the first day back in the new school term will be Tuesday 5th January and we look forward to welcoming our community back then.

Record breaking GCSE results at LWS Academy

At LWS, we encourage every opportunity for our students to achieve, and this year, we are incredibly proud of our Year 11 students. All passed at least two GCSEs, nearly two thirds achieved at least a standard pass in one of their subjects and a third achieved five good GCSEs at grade 4 or above including English and Maths. As a result, 89% of our students have secured their place in further education or training to progress further with their ambitions.

LWS Post-half term update

Well we have come to end of the most strangest of half terms in the schools history. Teachers and support staff have moved from traditional teaching to using online platforms and delivering food parcels to families. We have had no Year 11 exams or study leave. We have started to work with our new families for Year 7 but again this will look very different to all previous years.

As we plan for our re-connection with students it is essential that we are concentrating on key areas of government guidance which includes social distancing and on-site safety including cleaning. This guidance will impact on the amount of students we can have in school at any one time.  The school looks very different than before COVID-19 and our letter will confirm all arrangements regarding “What school looks like?” which we help to send to you soon. This will help prepare you and your son for the future.

Unfortunately, we have not yet had our transport requests approved from Hampshire County Council. As you will appreciate, this needs to be in place before sending out any further details to parents and to allow time for us to consult with you regarding any concerns/ questions that you might have.

As soon as we receive further updates from HCC Transport will be in touch.

We all hope you have a relaxing and sunny half term break

GFM Tribute to the NHS

People all over the country have been showing their appreciation for the National Health Service every Thursday at 8pm.

We thought it was important to share a short video lesson about the history of the NHS and some very special videos our staff and community have recorded in tribute to our key worker heroes.
