Letter to our Year 11s
Dear Pupils, Parents and Carers of our Year 11,
I wanted to write to you today as this is officially the last day that you are ‘expected’ to ‘attend’ our school. This means that as of today, we will not be expecting you to complete any further assignments on Google Classroom, or the transition resources that we have provided for you. However, these materials will still be available to you, should you need them, or wish to refer to them. Please do remember that there are many careers related guidance documents on the Google Classroom area and these may well be useful to you at this time.
In addition to the above, I also wanted to let you know that for the majority of you, we will now cease our regular telephone calls that we have been doing each week, as you have now come to the end of your ‘formal’ education with ourselves. However, although we will not be calling your houses directly, we need to reiterate to you that we are still here should you need anything at all and urge you to contact us should you need to.
We will be writing to you again soon to provide you with the details on how you will receive your results on GCSE results day. We are not in a position to share this with you at the moment, as we are awaiting further guidance due to the current situation. Please do look out for further communication from us on this. The academy also remains committed to ensuring that you have an opportunity to come back to the academy when it is safe to do so, to say your ‘goodbyes’ at some point in the academic year 2020-2021 and Ms Hands will be in touch with you regarding this during the next academic year.
Finally, I want to take this opportunity to wish you the very best for your future. Whilst you have been at the academy you have been part of a period of positive transformation and change. Transformation can only happen though when individuals come together, share their ideas and commit to better. Your ‘voice’ as a year group and the leadership roles that so many of you have undertaken across many different areas of the school have been pivotal to this transformational change. Although you are leaving today, a legacy of what you have helped to achieve remains, and the academy will continue to use your ideas and the contributions that you made to ensure that it continues to be a great place to learn in and to be a part of. Over the last five years, we have reminded you of the importance of putting our academy values of Respect, Commitment and Trust into action both in school and in the wider community and we want you to continue to do this so that you continue to have a positive impact on everyone you meet. It has been a real privilege to watch you grow and develop since joining the school and we want to encourage you to continue to build on all that you have learnt as you move forward on the next step of your educational journey.
With every best wish for your happy and successful future,
Mrs Rebecca Smith
and The Staff and Governors of Co-op Academy North Manchester
