Achievement Lead letter to parents/Carers 14 09 2020

My role as Achievement Lead for Year 7 is to ensure that each and every student achieves their very best. I recognise that even in normal circumstances the step up from primary school to secondary school is a huge step and students will be very daunted and some students may feel anxious. We are not in normal circumstances and I very much see the current climate as a fantastic opportunity to maximise student learning rather than as a barrier. From the outset we have challenged the year group to be the example to all of the other year groups at the school, to be proud of their efforts, proud of their appearance, and to learn from their mistakes. Our goal is to ensure that students are placed in the most suitable teaching group based on the needs of the individual student. We will continue to set the standards, support and challenge our year group in order for them to achieve their very best potential.
