School Council discuss how well students have adapted to changes
Headteacher, Nigel Griffiths, and his senior staff met with members of the school council today, Monday 14th September.
The student body was, as ever, represented by students across the age range. They were joined by Kate Nicholls in her role as support staff governor. The aim of the meeting was to see how well students had adapted to the changes this term and to hear any ideas they had.
Nigel Griffiths said that the last meeting of the school council took place remotely, so it was nice to see students in person. He said everyone told him that they were all pleased to be back at school. Nobody was surprised by the high attendance figures over the past two weeks.
A number of students asked staff about plans should the school need to shut down again. Students agreed that the online platform used to support home learning was good and were pleased this would be used again. Mr Griffiths said: “We all hope school can remain open as long as it is safe to do so. Should we have to close for groups or the whole school, I am confident we have the infrastructure to support students following the whole curriculum. During the summer we bought new software to be used in school or remotely. Students will get experience of this in the next few weeks.”
Mark Croad, Assistant Headteacher, said students understood the new systems put in place to keep them safe. He said pupils appreciated the extra work their teachers were undertaking moving around the school and not being in their own classrooms.
