Year 9 Remote Learning
For Attention of Year 9 Parents and Carers
Dear Year 9 Parent / Carer
As is the case with most schools nationally, Priory School staff absence rates are critically high at the moment, and will be again tomorrow.
So, we've got to take drastic action: we are going to ask Year 9 students to work at home tomorrow, Wednesday 30th March - just this one day. Teachers who would ordinarily be delivering lessons to Year 9 classes will instead be available to cover for colleagues who are absent and have Year 7, 8, 10 or 11 lessons.
Year 9 students should work from home using the Remote Access to the Curriculum document on our website. The link is here:
An updated version of this document will be available at 8am tomorrow, and will allow Year 9 students to complete meaningful and appropriate work throughout the day, according to their timetable. Students are also advised to check their Teams class sites for relevant materials and messages to groups.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but we are in an emergency situation and have exhausted all other avenues. We do very much appreciate your tolerance, understanding and co-operation.
