Dear Parents and Carers,
I do hope you are all well and are coping in the current circumstances.
I just wanted to send a quick message to check in with everyone.
At this time, we are currently running 3 schools within one school: Key Worker School, Online School and from Monday, Year 6 School. This has been a challenge to juggle these three very different provisions so thanks to everyone for bearing with us!
Our virtual learning is continuing for the vast majority of pupils. We now have a new link, since our migration to a single network with all of our other MAC Partners. The workspace is available via https://lourdesmac.sharepoint.com/sites/StBedesOffsiteWorking
Pupil logins have also changed. Their username is the same but the address will be USERNAME@lourdesmac.org.uk. I do hope that everyone is managing to get on. If you have any issues, contact Lourdes IT. All information is on their website at www.lourdesit.org.uk. I want to say a massive thank-you to Lourdes IT for all their hard work over the 1/2 term holiday and this week. They have moved over 7 million items and 3000 email addresses over so it has been no mean feat!
Year 6 are due to start back to some provision on Monday. Year 6 Parents have received separate information about this. I’m hoping that everything goes to plan! Staff have been in school this week for training on how the new provision will work to ensure that the school is as safe as possible for both pupils and staff.
Once again, thanks for all your support over the past 3 months. It’s been such a lift to get lovely emails and comments from parents and pupils. These have really helped us during our dark moments.
Hopefully, we will start to see some nicer weather over the forthcoming week after the downpours we’ve had!
Take care, stay safe and God bless,
Head of School
