Year 10 Return to School – English Language and Literature

Dear Parents and Carers

As you are aware, your Year 10 child will return to school for face-to-face teaching from Monday 8th March 2021. You will be able to appreciate that students in the year group have had vastly different experiences of lockdown and Home Learning, and whilst some students have managed incredibly well, others have been unable to complete as much work as they would in school.

To ensure that every child in the year group has teaching appropriate to their knowledge, in English Language and English Literature, some students will be temporarily put into a different group. This will not affect all students and will last only six weeks.

We think that this will support students who have completed the majority of their Home Learning by stretching and extending their knowledge of different concepts and texts. Students who have struggled to access Home Learning will be in a class with others in a similar position and will complete work that will bring them back into line with their peers. After the six weeks is completed, students who have moved will return to their original class.

I’m sure that you will agree that this is an appropriate course of action to support all of our Year 10 students in this challenging time. If you have any concerns or questions about support available for your child, please feel free to contact their teacher or myself for more information.

Best wishes,
Ms Johnson
Key Stage 4 Coordinator – English
