Achievement Lead letter to parents/Carers 14 09 2020

25th August 2020

As the Achievement Lead for Year 10, it is my role to ensure that all students in Year 10 succeed to the best of their ability and are best set up to take their first steps as citizens in the wider world outside of Garibaldi. I know that, during the last six months, learning and school has felt very different for students and parents, but I am hopeful that students will embrace the opportunities they are provided with as part of their return to school and enjoy fitting back into life at Garibaldi (as much as we are as staff!). I will be catching up with students over the coming weeks to address any concerns that they may have and ensure that they have a positive start back to their studies, as they enter their penultimate year of their 11-year journey.

Mr B West
