End of Term - September Re-Opening
As this academic year draws to a close we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to you, our community for your on-going support. To identify that this has been a challenging past term for all concerned is an understatement!
Reassuringly, our learners have been a credit to our school, they have quickly and successfully adapted to the distance learning programme. We have sought to reward their hard work and determination through the many prizes and commendations we have issued throughout lock down. Yet again, it has been wonderful to see that so many of our learners have been recognised for their excellent efforts at our annual presentation evening.
It is with great pleasure to confirm that whilst we have endured a year tinged with a degree of uncertainty there have been many highlights:
- 3,000 virtual lessons delivered
- £500 raised for Birmingham Children’s Hospital
- 1,000 visors developed and made at Beacon Hill Academy for Key Workers
- 600 PPE goggles donated to the NHS
- 120 laptops loaned out
- 228,560 questions answered on Hegarty Maths
- 20,000 GCSE Pods streamed
- 324,271 Century AI nuggets completed
- 238 one to one meetings with KS4 learners
It is important to note that the aforementioned achievements have only been possible through the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for this.
Following the government guidance issued to all schools in June we have worked hard with our Trust to ready the academy for September 2020. We have diligently put in place a range of measures which will help facilitate the safe return of all of our learners. Whilst we appreciate that you may be anxious about the return, please be assured the measures outlined below will help to mitigate against any potential risks associated with COVID-19. While it would be impossible to create a totally risk free environment, I would like to reassure you that everything that can be possibly done to minimise risk is being done. Please see below further details on the key measures we have outlined:
