I hope this message finds you in good health. It is very strange welcoming students and staff back after the Easter break but not actually being in the building! I don’t think any of us anticipated being away from each other for this long. As we enter this term, staff are working hard to make sure they connect with students personally and making sure students in exam groups have their assessed grades reflect their true performance. We will send more information about this very soon. Please can I ask that you maintain a routine with students of some home learning. If this is proving challenging, please contact us through your Head of Year or class teacher with any issues and we will try and resolve them. It is particularly important that students studying BTEC courses at all levels are completing coursework. This is going to be vital in awarding grades. All staff who are well are now online routinely and will help motivate and engage students so we are working together to ensure the best possible outcomes for their next steps. We will also be contacting students in our Year 11 to talk through their options for Post-16 at Bradford Academy. We may not be “business as usual” just yet, but be assured we are thinking of each and every student and missing them greatly. Stay safe and do keep in touch.
