Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope everyone managed to make the most of the glorious weather last week at half term and that the boys are returning to school feeling refreshed and ready for a busy Term 6. Attached to this email you will find a letter from Mr Moody, detailing the transition support that we have planned for over the coming term.
Starting from next week, we will be running some after school online meetings for small groups of students to have a virtual meeting with one of the pastoral team responsible for Year 7 next year. The meetings will take place using the Microsoft Teams platform: You do not need to download any specific software for the meeting as the link you are sent will open in your browser. The meetings can be accessed on any internet enabled device – it is nice to ‘meet’ the students virtually and see them on camera, but if you do not have access to a webcam or phone with camera (or if your son is particularly camera shy!), please do not worry, it is not essential! Students would need microphone access to contribute verbally – however this again is not essential as they can contribute via the text chat facility if the microphone is not available.
The sessions are expected to last around 40 minutes, depending on the number of questions that the students may ask. These sessions are aimed at the students rather than at parents, however they may need your assistance to get connected. The sessions will run on the following dates and times:
