Message from Headteacher – 17th April 2020

April 17th, 2020 Comments off

Dear Parent/Carer

I hope you and your family are keeping safe and well, and you had a lovely Easter break. So, the summer term officially starts on Monday, but there is, in my view, no sign of us returning for some weeks. 

We are four weeks into choppy waters, four weeks since lockdown started, and life, as we know it, stopped. Our home, school, and social environments all changed overnight. We’ve found new ways of teaching and leading from home, checking on students, and innovative ways to keep our community feeling and operating as a community, despite our social distancing. Harrow Way was open over the Easter Holidays for the children of key workers and vulnerable students and will continue to be open for these students after the break.

Thanks to all you parents too for your continued support and kind words. A number of you, now with more time on your hands to reflect and put pen to paper, have very graciously been in touch this week to express your gratitude. Read more…

School Closure and Remote Working Arrangements

March 20th, 2020 Comments off

School Closure and Remote Working Arrangements

As you will have heard, the government has taken the decision to close schools for a period of time apart from those of key workers and vulnerable students. 

We expect that most of our Harrow Way families will be able to manage childcare provision. We are making a provision for students who cannot be at home during the school day, but this is only to be accessed if there is no alternative for your child, your family are not self-isolating and do not have symptoms. Details of the arrangements have been sent through to those involved already.

The most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear: if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.

No school buses will be running. Transport to and from school will be parents’ responsibility.

Thank you so much for your amazing support so far! 

Remote Working Arrangements Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 – Starting Monday 23rd March 2020

Teachers have been busy putting together work that can be completed at home – the details of which will be found below:

School open as normal for all year groups –  Friday 20th March 2020

Last night the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Education announced that schools are to close at the end of the day on Friday 20th March 2020, except for the children of key workers (as defined by the Government) and pupils deemed vulnerable. 

At this stage we don’t know how long this closure will be for but we are working on the assumption that it is likely to be for some time.

We have been working on contingency plans in anticipation of this announcement and with two weeks of term time remaining, we want to reassure you that we will be providing your child with school work. Details of these arrangements will be emailed tomorrow

Schools have been asked to close to everyone except children of ‘key workers’ and ‘vulnerable children’ from Monday 23 March 2020. Please do let us know via the Google Form we have already sent out if you feel that you fall into one of these categories and no later than 10am on Friday 20th March.

All other children must stay at home from Monday 23rd March.

Key Worker and At Risk Child Information

March 19th, 2020 Comments off

It is expected most Harrow Way families will be able to manage child care whilst schools are closed from next week.

However, please follow this link to complete our Key Worker and At Risk Child Information Form if you believe you might be considered a Key Worker or your child is in an ‘at risk’ group.  Completing this form will not guarantee child care provision for your child.  We will confirm plans as soon as we are able to.

Please submit your form by 10.00 am on Friday 20th March.

Thank you.

Coronavirus Update – 18/03/20

School will be open as normal for all year groups on Thursday 19th March

Self-isolating could have an effect on staffing levels on Friday. We will continue to risk assess the situation and keep you updated.

Links to work for self-isolating students can be found here.

If you are reading this on the website and have not received an email from the school, please ensure you pass on your updated email address to adminoffice@harrowway.hants.sch.uk

Announcement today Wednesday 18th March 2020

I am sure many of you are now aware of the Prime Minister’s announcement today that schools will be closing at the end of the day on Friday until further notice. This will be for all students other than those of key workers and those students identified as vulnerable. In England, all exams in May and June have been cancelled, including GCSEs, A-levels and primary school national curriculum tests known as SATs. 

We will need to await more detailed information from the Department of Education. This will arrive tomorrow (Thursday) and when we have made further plans we will update parents accordingly. Many thanks for your ongoing support.

Coronavirus Update – 17/03/20

In light of changing Government advice on Monday 16th March I wanted to update you on school routines and actions related to Coronavirus-19.

We fully understand how concerned many parents are in the present climate and want to reassure you that your child’s health and safety is our top priority.  Self isolating will inevitably have an effect on staffing levels. We will continue to risk assess the situation and keep you updated on any decisions we need to make.  School is open as normal for all year groups.

7/14 DAYS AT HOME – SELF-ISOLATION LEARNING

March 17th, 2020 Comments off

As you know, the current situation is that school will remain open. However, as your child has to remain at home for 7 to 14 days then here are some activities to support their learning. The curriculum pages on the website will give you details about the topics that your child is studying in school.  Year 11 students will be aware of what work needs completing/revising/self-quizzing in each subject area.  It is a good idea to keep checking Show My Homework for any work and www.senecalearning.com has a wealth of courses covering many subject areas. Here is a helpful blog that also has some good ideas: Home Learning.
